Reflecting the grassroots philosophy of the National Scenic Byways Program, FHWA and America's Byways Resource Center have sponsored the following major publications to help local groups plan, manage, and market their byways:
- 1994 - Community Guide to Planning and Managing a Scenic Byway (National Trust for Historic Preservation & Scenic America)
- 1999 - Byway Beginnings: Understanding, Inventorying and Evaluating a Byway's Intrinsic Qualities (National Park Service and Whiteman & Taintor)

- 2004 - From Milestones to Mile-Markers: Understanding Historic Roads (National Trust for Historic Preservation)
- 2005 - Conserving Our Treasured Places: Managing Visual Quality on Scenic Byways (Scenic America)
This list is not intended to be comprehensive. Other resources and tools have also been developed, and FHWA and the America's Byways Resource Center are continually evaluating the need for additional materials.
The Program also issues two periodical publications. Vistas is issued bi-monthly by the America's Byways Resource Center, in cooperation with FHWA, and includes Program news, corridor management strategies, in-depth articles on individual byways, and an events calendar. America's Byways Bulletin, issued bi-monthly by FHWA, is an e-mail bulletin sent to America's Byways and others, with news briefs, information on nominations and grants, and other resource information.
Additionally, several State byway programs have developed publications and guidance to inform, advise, and direct scenic byways advocates within their States.
