State Highways of Texas

The State of Texas has several classes of state highways. There are the regular state highways, loops, spurs, farm-to-market, ranch-to-market, and park roads. State Highways, are state funded highways. Loops, are highways that are state maintianed and create a by-pass. Spurs, are highways that runs from a state route and end at a non-state maintained highway. Farm-to-Market, these are routes that are built and maintained by TxDOT, but are mainly funded by a city of county. These are mostly found east of U.S. Rt. 281. Ranch-to-Market, are the same as Farm-to-Market routes. These are found west of U.S. Rt. 281. Park Roads, are state maintianed routes in park areas.
