As far back as the 1800s, early Texas roadway systems played a major role in the success of Texas settlements. The first pathway, better known as Camino Real, was developed as a result of the road traveled from Mexico through San Antonio to the east Texas missions. Congress of the Republic of Texas established the Central National Road system that would allow emigrants easy access into Texas and to include for the supervision of bridge construction. Roads were rocky trails or muddy streams but citizens were allowed to petition for new or roadway improvements. Not until the 1900s did roads improve much in part to the invention of the automobile. The Federal Aid Road Act established the department of highway and increased funds, made available by car registrations, paved the way for a better roadway system and maintenance.
In the late 1920s, Texas roadways took on a new image in preparation for the increased tourist industry. Road construction created shorter routes, better drainage, better driving conditions, the beautification of the landscape and development of parks.
After WWII, the demand for paved roads increased. The interstate highway system developed in mid 1950 established a trust fund by the federal government whereby the federal government would pay for 90% of the system and each state 10%. Texas highways are maintained less costly than the national average and today are financed by a gasoline tax, car/vehicle registration, and the federal government assistance. Campaigns to keep Texas beautiful from trash and debris have kept the roads attractive and safe.
