U.S. Highway 67
As of 2004, the highway's northern terminus is in Sabula, Iowa at an intersection with U.S. Highway 52. Its southern terminus is in Presidio, Texas at the Rio Grande, where it continues in Mexico as Highway 16.
- When US 67 was commissioned in the original 1926 numbering plan, it extended from Fredericktown, Missouri to Dallas, Texas.
- The route was extended across West Texas to its present-day southern terminus in 1930.
- In 1934, US 67 was extended northward to Dubuque, Iowa. Between Davenport, Iowa and Dubuque, it incorporated the route of U.S. Highway 55. The remainder of US 55 (to Minneapolis, Minnesota) was absorbed by U.S. Highway 52.
- The 1934 extension left the last 35 miles (56 km) of US 67, south of Dubuque, co-signed with the extended US 52. In 1967, the US 67 designation was removed from this section, ending US 67 at Sabula, Iowa.
