Farm to Market Road 471 (FM 471) is an FM highway in the San Antonio area of Texas. The highway is known as Culebra Road within Bexar County.

Route description[edit]

FM 471 begins at an intersection with I-35 in Natalia. The highway shortly begins an overlap with SH 132 and the two highways travel through the town together. FM 471 leaves the highway and travels to the town of LaCoste. The highway enters Castroville and has a short overlap with US 90. FM 471 serves the small community of Rio Medina before intersecting FM 1283 near Lake Medina. The highway turns after here and runs in a southeast (northbound)-northwest (southbound) direction, despite still being signed north-south. FM 471 enters the city of San Antonio near the Government Canyon State Natural Area. Near SeaWorld, FM 471 ends at an intersection Loop 1604 (Anderson Loop).

History[edit]

Previous route[edit]

FM 471 was first designated on July 9, 1945 from Dilley to Divot. The highway was then extended further north 5 miles toward Batesville on July 22, 1949. The route was cancelled the next month on August 25. The highway was combined with FM 117.[3]

Current route[edit]

FM 471 opened May 23, 1951, running from US 81 (now SH 132) in Natalia to US 90 in Castroville. On January 29, 1953, FM 1105 from US 90 north and east 24.4 miles to a road intersection was cancelled and combined with FM 471.[4] The highway was extended further east to SH 16 later that year on October 28. The highway was extended further south to I-35 on May 6, 1964. On May 27, 1995, the entire route from Loop 1604 to SH 16 was designated Urban Road 471 (UR 471). Like all Urban Roads in Texas, the highway continued to be signed with its FM designation.[1][5]

On December 18, 2014, Minute Order 114165 transferred the section of FM 471 between Loop 1604 and the Leon Valley city limits to the city of San Antonio and deleted it from the state highway system. As a result of the order, the section of FM 471 within Leon Valley became State Highway Spur 471. This eliminated Urban Road 471 (UR 471).[6][7]

Spur 471 is a state highway spur located in Leon Valley. The highway was designated on December 18, 2014 when FM 471 was decommissioned inside Loop 1604. The highway begins at the San Antonio–Leon Valley city limits and runs east for approximately a half mile to State Highway 16 (Bandera Road). Spur 471 is known locally as Grissom Road.
