    Compared to most streets in Galveston, the seawall is in great shape. We should use that grant money to pave some of the many streets that are in pathetic shape.

    How did it become Galveston's to pay for? It's Maintained by TxDOT
    “FM 3005 was first designated in Galveston County in 1966; its western terminus was at 13 Mile Road. The route was lengthened to the boundary of Galveston Island State Park in 1972, and through the park and to the San Luis Pass Toll Bridge in 1988. The designation was officially changed to Urban Road 3005 (UR 3005) in 1995; as is the case with other urban roads, TxDOT continues to sign the route using the "Farm Road" shield”
    The span “East end: Spur 342 to
    Galveston West end: San Luis Pass Toll Bridge at Galveston”
    “Maintained by TxDOT Length: 22.003 mi
    Existed: 1966 – present”

    Must be City of Galveston maintained - otherwise how could the city charge you for parking on it? I just walked on Seawall from 57th to 25th during Mardi Gras. I walked on it from 14th to Wal-Mart in last year's Mardi Gras. It's in great shape. I agree with Don233. I asked a Mainland mayor who is responsible for its maintenance. He said the county is responsible for the Seawall, the City of Galveston for Seawall Boulevard.
