    • Abstract:
      The 1990 Scenic Byways Study was a response to a Congressional initiative to identify program options for a national scenic byways program. As part of tat initiative, Congress asked that case studies be conducted to illustrate the existing policies and programs and the impact of three issues on existing future programs. The three issues were the environment, traffic safety, and economic (tourist) development. This report is concerned with the elements of the last two issues and adds another important element - cost. Greenhorn & O'Mara, Inc. was asked by the Federal Highway Administration to conduct three case studies as follows: 1. Safety Issues in Scenic Byways 2. Highway Costs for Scenic Byways 3. The Impact of Scenic Byways on Travel. All studies involved a survey of selected state highway organizations after review of the results from the 1990 Scenic Byways Inventory. Data were obtained from state submissions and from telephone interviews. For the "cost" study, data were obtained from other sources and blended with state data. It is believed that each case study provides a useful guide to analysts considering the designation of existing highways as scenic byways. The studies present recommendations and caveats. Perhaps the most useful guide is the "cost" report. Cost data, with ranges, are presented for all elements of a scenic byway that are unique to such highways. An analyst can make various assumptions on complementary services to be provided and arrive at a first very preliminary estimate of the cost of designating a road as a scenic byway.
