Spur 580, also called Camp Bowie West, is a 5.395-mile (8.682 km) state highway spur route in western Fort Worth, Texas. Spur 580 is a former segment of U.S. Highway 80, and received its current designation when US 80 was decommissioned west of Mesquite, Texas. It is also a part of the older Bankhead Highway, which Spur 580 was once known as locally.

Route description

The highway's western terminus is Exit 2 of Interstate 30 near the western boundary of Fort Worth. Heading generally in an easterly direction, the highway runs through the Westland neighborhood before intersecting Interstate 820 at a diamond interchange. Continuing through west Fort Worth, Spur 580 crosses Alta Mere Boulevard (State Highway 183) just before reaching its eastern terminus at Camp Bowie Boulevard (U.S. Highway 377). From this point, the former US 80 continued northeast on Camp Bowie (concurrent with US 377).[2]

History

Spur 580 is a former routing of US 80, and Spur 580 was designated in 1991, when U.S. Highway 80 was decommissioned west of Mesquite, Texas. It is also a part of the older Bankhead Highway.[3][4]

Because of the confusion resulting from one road with multiple names — including Highway 80 West, Bankhead Highway, Weatherford Highway and Spur 580 — the city of Fort Worth renamed it Camp Bowie West in 2001.[4][5][6]
