Encyclopedia > U.S. Highway 90

United States Highway 90 is an east-west United States highway. Despite the "0" in its route number, US 90 never was a full coast-to-coast route; it has always ended at Van Horn, Texas. A short-lived northward extension to Pine Springs, Texas lasted less than a year, and the signs on that segment were likely never changed.
