Please Note: Because the National Scenic Byways Program is no longer funded, FHWA is no longer soliciting grant applications. Without funding for the Program, FHWA will not be moving forward with another round of designations of America's Byways® at this time.
This report consists of fifteen issue papers, each addressing a separate aspect of the National Scenic Byways Program (NSBP). They provide examples and offer insights into the current status of the nationally designated routes known collectively as America's Byways® and present strategies and options that may be considered for the Program in the future.
The fifteen issues were identified in consultation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and based on comments from State and Indian tribe byway coordinators and representatives from nationally designated byways at the America's Byways® Conference in Baltimore, Maryland in 2007.
