  • Abstract:
    The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) directed that the Secretary of Transportation establish a National Scenic Byways Advisory Committee to assist him in developing a national scenic byways program. The Secretary appointed a 17-member committee including representatives of Federal agencies, local and State governments, and related interest groups. The committee's unique challenge and opportunity was to recommend to the Secretary of Transportation those minimum criteria by which State and Federal agencies would designate and operate certain outstanding scenic byways as National Scenic Byways and All-American Roads, while at the same time maintaining and improving the intrinsic qualities (scenic, historic, natural, cultural, recreational, or archaeological) of those byways and the corridors they traverse. In addressing this challenge, the Committee's deliberations were charged with great enthusiasm. A federally supported program t identify and develop those special scenic byways that offer outstanding scenic, natural, cultural, recreational, or archaeological values appears long overdue.
