The creation of a Corridor Management Plan for the Glacial Trail Scenic Byway (GTSB) was made possible through a Federal Highway Administration America’s Byways Grant in conjunction with the Iowa Department of Transportation. This grant was administered by staff at the Iowa Lakes Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) office in Spencer, Iowa with assistance from staff at the Golden Hills RC&D office in Oakland, Iowa. This Corridor Management Plan addresses the fourteen elements of a CMP as defined in the Federal Register (Federal Register / Vol. 60, No. 96 / Thursday, May 18, 1995). These points covered a large variety of issues, including a description of the six byway intrinsic qualities and related maps, strategies for maintaining and enhancing the intrinsic qualities, enhancing existing and new development, accommodating commerce, maintaining and enhancing visitor experience, reviewing road safety, compliance of outdoor advertising, a signage plan, design standards, a schedule for implementation and on-going public participation, a marketing plan and brief interpretive plan.
