Hello and welcome to the Texas State Highways task force. If you would like to help, please jump in and start adding or editing.

Scope and goalsEdit

The scope of the Texas State Highways project will include all of the highways in Texas that are built and maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT), to include the highways part of the United States Numbered Highways or the Interstate Highway System. The scope of the project will also include all toll roads not operated by TXDOT as well other notable roads in Texas that do not fall under the above criteria. For US highways and Interstate highways, a Texas specific version should exist for those that transverse more than the state of Texas, i.e. Interstate 10 in Texas. For the intrastate highways such as I-27, a separate article for Texas is not necessary.

The goal is to document all of the State highways built and maintained by TxDOT, past and present.

  • Expand : * On the List of Farm to Market Roads in Texas page add the numbers/links for the rest of the FM roads
  • Other : * Try to raise up a bit of consensus on Park and Recreational roads. TxDOT maintains them, too, after all. (Talk about this on the talk page, if you please.
