  • Abstract:
    The 1990 Department of Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriation Act directed the Department of Transportation to prepare a report with the following objectives: Update for the use of Congress a nationwide inventory of existing scenic byways. Develop guidelines for the establishment of a National Scenic Byways Program including recommended techniques for maintaining and enhancing the scenic, recreational, and historic qualities associated with each byway. Conduct case studies of the economic impact of scenic byways on travel and tourism. Analyze potential safety consequences and environmental impacts associated with scenic byway designation. To respond directly to the first objectives, the Federal Highway Administration developed a questionnaire in May 1990, to obtain information on Scenic Byways and byways programs. It was reviewed by a representative group of Federal, State, and local officials, private groups, and individuals. A copy of this questionnaire is included in Appendix A. This questionnaire was distributed to a variety of State and Federal agencies, including the State highway and transportation departments, State tourism departments, and the pertinent Federal agencies (U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs).
