Scenic Byways is a state and national program to recognize highways with special intrinsic qualities in one of more areas of natural, scenic, archaeological, historic, cultural or recreational assets. Once accepted into the program, a designated scenic byway is eligible for federal grants to help with planning and transportation improvements that enhance or protect the intrinsic qualities and the traveler experience.
