In summary, this document has demonstrated that the National Scenic Byway Act's intention of providing a funding mechanism that would support the wide-ranging and evolving needs of byways has succeeded. The Program's flexibility and broad scope allows State and Indian tribe byways, America's Byways, and State and Indian tribe byway programs to accomplish efforts ranging from conceiving of ideas to constructing facilities. Far-reaching plans for protecting resources or tapping potential new markets of visitors are funded in the same cycles as maps indicating the location of pullouts. All of these efforts are important to byway success and all are eligible under the funding categories.

As noted in the text, there are issues that FHWA should consider investigating in more detail in the future.
