Are You Ready?

Before you consider submitting a nomination for national designation, we request that you review the Designation Readiness Worksheet. The Federal Highway Administration has developed this worksheet to help byway leaders judge their readiness to seek national designation for their byway. It is intended for your use only as you begin to think about the kind of information you might be requested to provide in your nomination application.

Seeking designation requires considerable effort and the collection and assessment of many documents. Byway leaders are encouraged to review this Worksheet, make notations, and verify that they have the information available to demonstrate that their road possesses the necessary Intrinsic Qualities and significance needed to be considered for designation as one of America's Byways®.

The FY 2008 Designation Readiness Worksheet can be accessed online at
