Barshop Road, formerly Sam Barshop Road,[1] is the only road at UTSA to cut clear across campus. It intersects Loop 1604 to form the least prominent entrance to campus from the north (the only one without a traffic light) and intersects UTSA Blvd., becoming Roadrunner Way as it leaves campus. It separates University Oaks Phase III from Phase II, meets with Brackenridge Road to form the campus's only rotary intersection, then proceeds past the intramural fields. It divides Chaparral Village and Chisholm Hall from the West Campus buildings.[2]
