Texas State Highway 95

SH 95 begins at US 190 and SH 36 southeast of Temple. The road travels south through Taylor and Bastrop, crossing IH-10 at Flatonia before reaching Shiner, home of the Spoetzl brewery. SH 95 continues south to Yoakum, where it ends. The road was designated a state highway to Bastrop in 1939, and extended south to Yoakum between 1939 and 1941.
