TxDOT developed the City Pride Sign Program to give cities the opportunity to display the names and logos of their civic organizations along state highways without interfering with official highway signs.

Participation in the program is voluntary. When a city decides they want a City Pride Sign, they enter into a written agreement with TxDOT that determines the exact placement of the display as well as the construction and maintenance requirements.
State and federal laws limit where these types of civic organization signs can be placed. Signs are primarily designed for non-controlled access highways such as US or State highways, Farm and Ranch to Market roads, spurs and loops.
City Pride Signs are located along highway entrances to the city and are placed 300 to 800 feet from existing city limit signs. A sign may be placed on each highway entering the city.
For controlled access highways, such as Interstates, signs are placed on the frontage road.
