Scenic Roads, called Byways and All-American Roads

The National Scenic Byways Program (NSBP)

The National Scenic Byways Program is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Program is a grass-roots collaborative effort established to help recognize, preserve and enhance selected roads throughout the United States. The program was established in 1991. Since 1992, the National Scenic Byways Program has provided over $388 million in funding for 2,832 State and nationally designated byway projects in 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.
The U.S. Secretary of Transportation recognizes certain roads as America's Byways® -- All-American Roads or National Scenic Byways-based on one or more archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational and scenic intrinsic qualities.
