Route description

The entire route runs no more than a few miles south parallel of the former Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike (now Interstate 30), but does not intersect with it at any point.

The highway begins as Lancaster Avenue from Interstate 35W just southeast of downtown Fort Worth.

Entering Arlington, it becomes Division Street, and passes just south of AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park in Arlington.

After entering Grand Prairie, it becomes Main Street, passing through mainly older commercial buildings and the city's downtown area.

When it enters Dallas, it becomes Davis Street to Loop 12. The route was designated in 1991 to replace US 80 when it was decommissioned west of Dallas. On October 30, 2014, the section of SH 180 from Loop 12 to Interstate 35E was removed from the state highway system and returned to the city of Dallas.

History

SH 180 was previously designated by 1933 as a connector route from Annona north to then-SH 5. This route had been previously designated as SH 5A, and was redesignated as Loop 23 by 1939, and FM 44 by 1942.
