National Scenic Byways Program Fact Sheet

What is the National Scenic Byways Program?
The NSBP contains a collection of nationally recognized America's Byways®. It is a grassroots program through which communities can nominate a roadway based on its intrinsic qualities, which could be historic, cultural, recreational, natural, scenic, or archaeological.

The NPS has encouraged participation in the National Scenic Byways Program because it promotes opportunities to provide transportation improvements that "lie lightly on the land." It allows the NPS to forge partnerships with state and local governments, gateway communities, and other stakeholders so NPS can improve roadways in and around park units while protecting natural and cultural resources.
