FAP Marker?

Recommended Posts

I found two interesting markers today, They both had FAP and are in the shape of the Federal Sheild.

I'm not sure what they are, or if they can be logged...

Anyone recognize this?

Not familiar with the marker per se, but FAP stands for Federal Aid Primary, as in federally aided primary highway. Hence the shape. I'd waypoint it. I've never seen one like it. Anyone out there know if maybe this is something unique to TexDOT?

Federal Aid Primary as opposed to Federal Aid Secondary:

 

The Federal-aid primary highway system (FAP system) is defined as a system of connected main highways, selected by each state highway department subject to the approval of the Bureau of Public Roads. It encompasses routes of the Interstate System and other important routes serving essentially through traffic with their urban extensions, including important loops, belt highways, and spurs.[1]

 

The Federal-aid secondary highway system (FAS system) consists of the principal secondary and feeder routes including farm-to-market roads, rural mail and public school bus routes, local rural roads, county and township roads, roads of the county, road class, and their urban extensions. These roads are chosen by the state highway departments and appropriate local road officials cooperatively, subject to approval by the Bureau of Public Roads.[1]

Found one of those in OK 4/1/12 at 33-33.937 101-40.546. I don't have a place to post the photo. If you are interested I can e-mail it to you. It is FAP 220 (1931).
