The Highway Beautification Act of 1965 (23 USC §131) requires the state of Texas to control signage along interstate and federal-aid roadways. Our regulatory map has been updated to reflect the current extent of highways classified as federal-aid within Texas as defined by 23 USC 101(a)(5).
These classifications are maintained by the Transportation Planning and Programming Division (TPP) within TxDOT. If you would like more information on the functional classification process, you may wish to file an open records request with TPP.
The Outdoor Advertising Signs and Regulated Highways Map shows the regulation type of each highway: prohibited, primary or rural.
