SCENIC AND RECREATIONAL HIGHWAY STUDY
This study, undertaken for the Legislative Transportation Committee, State of Washington redefines the concept of the Scenic and Recreational Highway System in the state. It develops criteria for measuring the quality of scenic and recreational resources along state highways, applies these criteria to the development of alternative plans for the system and proposes means for the implementation of the plan adopted by the client Legislative Committee. A non-continuous system of existing state routes only was examined, and both scenic and recreational components were considered equally. The recommended plan is 1479 miles long. All segments are separately prioritized for management, the senic portion for conservation and enhancement and the recreational portion for recreational development.
