The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is the state agency responsible for the day-to-day operations and maintenance of the system.

In addition to the nationally numbered Interstate Highways and U.S. Highways, the highway system consists of a main network of state highways, loops, spurs, and beltways that provide local access to the other highways. The system also includes a large network of farm to market roads that connect rural areas of the state with urban areas and the rest of the state highway system.

All state highways, regardless of classification, are paved roads. The Old San Antonio Road, also known as the El Camino Real, is the oldest highway in the United States, first being blazed in 1691. The length of the highways varies from US 83's 893.4 miles (1,437.8 km) inside the state borders to Spur 200 at just 0.05 miles long.

But it retains the regionalisms and distinct cultural identities of the Tejanos, of Cajuns, of the Irish, African American, and Anglo American enclaves established prior to the republic era and admission to statehood.
