Loop 534 (also known as Veterans Highway) is a bypass of eastern Kerrville in the Texas Hill Country. The highway runs by Tivy High School, the former school of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. In early 2006, the entire length of highway was signed as Veterans Highway by the Texas House of Representatives.[2]

Route description[edit]

History[edit]

Loop 534 was designated on May 2, 1977, from FM 689 (signed as SH 173), northward to I-10. On October 23, 1978, Loop 534 extended west over a portion of FM 689 to SH 16. This extension was already signed as SH 173, along with all of FM 689. On August 29, 1990, as a result of the elimination of all cosigned farm to market roads, ranch to market roads, loops, and spurs, with state highways, the section of Loop 534 that was signed as SH 173 was officially designated as SH 173, eliminating that section of Loop 534.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire highway is in Kerrville, Kerr County.
