State Highway 95 (SH 95) is a state highway which connects the cities of Yoakum and Temple in the U.S. state of Texas.[1]

Route description[edit]

SH 95 runs northward from Alt. US 77 at the northern edge of Yoakum. It travels through Shiner (crossing Alt. US 90), Moulton, Flatonia (intersecting US 90 and Interstate 10), Smithville, Bastrop, Elgin (meeting US 290), and Taylor (crossing US 79) before ending at US 190 in Temple.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

The portion of SH 95 from SH 71 to US 290 has been designated part of the 10th Mountain Division Highway.[12]

History[edit]

The route was designated on April 21, 1924 along a route from Taylor to Elgin.[13] On April 6, 1932, it extended south to Hochheim, replacing SH 109.[14] On July 15, 1935, the section from Elgin to Flatonia was cancelled.[15] On June 19, 1936, the section from Elgin to Bastrop was restored.[16]On September 26, 1939, the section from Yoakum to Hochheim was transferred to SH 111, the section from Flatonia to Yoakum was renumbered to SH 297, and the section from Smithville to Flatonia was cancelled and removed from the state highway system, and the section from Bastrop to Smithville was already concurrent with SH 71, so that section was cancelled. On November 20, 1939, before signage was changed, SH 297 was changed back to SH 95, creating a gap between Flatonia and Bastrop. On May 29, 1941, the section of SH 95 from Flatonia north to Smithville was restored as a temporary route and SH 95 was again concurrent with SH 71 between Bastrop and Smithville. On November 24, 1978, the section from SH 53 to SH 36 in Temple was cancelled and transferred to Loop 363. The road had already been improved from Elgin to Sayersville and this completed the connection to Bastrop. The Works Progress Administration funded the $109,000 relief project.[17]
