History

When US 277 was commissioned in 1930, it ended at the U.S.-Mexico border in Del Rio, Texas. It was extended southeast to its present terminus in 1952.[1] The original northern terminus was in Oklahoma City at its intersection with parent route U.S. 77 and U.S. 62. The northern terminus remained there until 1964. when it was truncated to its present terminus following the completion of the H.E. Bailey Turnpike and the connecting U.S. 62 freeway into Oklahoma City, which would become Interstate 44 in the 1980s. As of February 2010, US 277 allows a speed limit of 75 mph only in Dimmit County, Texas
