Contents 1 History, 2 Route description, 3 Business routes 3.1 Former Business routes, , 4 Major intersections, 5 References, History: The route was originally planned by 1933 as connector between Dallas and Bridgeport. By 1939, this section was completed, with an extension northward from Chico to Sunset. This route remained little changed until 1973, when it was extended northward from Sunset to Bowie. Major rerouting was made in 1976, when the route was redirected west over U.S. Highway 380, U.S. Highway 281, former SH 199, and U.S. Highway 82 from Bridgeport to Lubbock, with the stretch from Bridgeport to Bowie transferred to SH 101. In 1977, the route was extended to the New Mexico border, connecting to it sister New Mexico State Highway 114, replacing State Highway 116. SH 116 was originally was planned in 1926 to go from Dallas to Gunter. This route became an extension of SH 14 by 1936. On August 2, 1985, Delta Air Lines Flight 191 crossed this route shortly before crashing on approach to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. One of the aircraft's engines struck a car on the roadway, instantly killing its occupant; 136 people on the flight also died in the accident. Route description: The highway's eastern terminus is at the intersection with SH 183 in Irving at the site of the now demolished Texas Stadium. It continues northwest as the "John W. Carpenter Freeway" (a name shared with SH 183) along the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, eventually crossing the airport's northern entrance, proceeding west into Grapevine. At Grapevine, it continues northwest through Southlake and Westlake, eventually intersecting Interstate 35W at Texas Motor Speedway. Except for the western end, most of this route is freeway; the SH 114 Business road in the Roanoke area (the original routing of the highway) is named for the late golfer Byron Nelson, who lived in that area. From there, it continues on a mostly northwesterly course as a rural highway, passing through many towns: Rhome, Boyd and Bridgeport, where it joins U.S. Highway 380 through Jacksboro. It continues through rural Texas, passing through Olney, Megargel, Seymour (where it joins U.S. Highway 82), Benjamin, Guthrie, Dickens, Crosbyton, Ralls, Lorenzo (where it also joins U.S. Highway 62) and Idalou before eventually turning southwest into Lubbock. In Lubbock, Highway 114 follows Idalou Road where it separates from US 82, then bears west along 19th Street, eventually forming the southern boundary of Texas Tech University, where it then separates from US 62. It passes Loop 289 and exits Lubbock continuing towards the west along 19th Street and then Levelland Highway. As it continues west, it passes through Smyer, Levelland, Whiteface and Morton before crossing into New Mexico. Business routes: SH 114 has four current business routes. Business State Highway 114-B (formerly Loop 44) is a Business Loop that runs from SH 114 on the west side of Levelland (in west Texas) south along West Street, then east through the downtown area on Houston Street to an intersection with US 385 (College Street). The road turns left (north), concurrent with US 385, until intersecting once again at SH 114. The road was designated as Business SH 114-B in 1993, and is 1.594 miles (2.565 km) long. Business State Highway 114-J (formerly Spur 440) is a Business Spur that goes east into Rhome from the intersection of US 81/US 287 and SH 114 west. The route runs along Rhome Avenue to an intersection with Business US 81-E. It is part of a previous route of SH 114. The Business route was created in 1991 and is 0.329 miles (0.529 km) long. Business State Highway 114-K is a business loop that runs through Roanoke. This route runs on Byron Nelson Boulevard, along a previous route of SH 114. The business route was created in 2001 when SH 114 was rerouted further north and east around town. The route is 1.787 miles (2.876 km) long. Business State Highway 114-L (formerly Loop 382 as well as a previous routing of SH 114) is a business loop that runs through Grapevine. This route runs east on Northwest Highway to an intersection with Texan Trail, then turns right to go southbound there. The road continues until it reaches SH 114/SH 121. The portion of the business route along Texan Trail is concurrent with SH 26. The route was created in 1991 when the road's designation as Loop 382 was discontinued. The route is 2.074 miles (3.338 km) long. Former Business routes: There is one former Business Route along SH 114. Business State Highway 114-H was located in Bridgeport between 1991 and 2007 and was 1.3 miles (2.1 km) long. The route went east along Halsell Avenue from an intersection with SH 114, to an intersection with 13th Street, then turned right (south) until another intersection with SH 114. This route had been previously designated Loop 373 before 1991; since 2007, though, the portion along 13th was changed back to Loop 373.
