State Highway Loop 11 (Loop 11, also known locally as Beverly Loop) is a state highway loop located in northwestern Wichita Falls, Texas.

Route description[edit]

Loop 11 begins at an intersection with Business U.S. Highway 277 (Bus. US 277, Seymour Highway), about three miles (4.8 km) west of downtown. The road continues south of here as Beverly Drive. After about 14 mile (0.40 km), the highway crosses the Wichita River. The highway turns sharp to the northwest at Southwest Drive before intersecting Farm to Market Road 367 (FM 367). After the intersection with FM 367, Loop 11 passes the Region 9 Education Center.[2] Loop 11 continues to the north, junctioning with Industrial Drive and Bus. US 287, crossing over a railway line. Near Maurine Street, the highway curves to the northeast, before turning back in a more north direction. Loop 11 has a junction with US 287, a few miles southwest of Sheppard Air Force Base/Wichita Falls Municipal Airport. The highway passes near a retail center and turns east at Airport Drive before ending at I-44/US 277/US 281, with the road continuing east as FM 890.

History[edit]

Loop 11 was designated in 1939, running from US 287 west of Wichita Falls southward along Beverly Drive to US 277 (10th Street). The highway was extended northward in 1968 when US 287 was relocated to the Northwest Freeway. In 2002, Loop 11 was extended northward and eastward to I-44.
