There is now a nationwide effort (the Scenic Byways Movement) to focus attention on the need to develop scenic byways and on their potential for enhancing tourism and recreation; to create coalitions and strategies to actually develop the byways; and, alternatively, to see that the job gets done. As part of this nationwide effort, the Transportation Departments of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska sponsored this project so they might obtain guidance related to Scenic Byways programs that may be developed in each state. The following issues are addressed in this report: scenic quality, road safety, scenic byway designation, and scenic byway information.
