FINAL CASE STUDY FOR THE NATIONAL SCENIC BYWAYS STUDY: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SCENIC BYWAYS PROGRAM

The Seaway Trail is the longest National Recreation Trail in the United States. Seaway Trail, Inc., is a private sector not-for-profit organization concerned with tourism development of the Seaway Trail. This report contains Seaway Trail, Inc.'s recommendations for a national scenic byways system. Briefly stated, these recommendations are as follows: the Federal Highway Administration should identify criteria, organizational structure and funding to establish scenic byway legislation; use terminology that is more appropriate and encompassing than scenic byways; review highway systems considered for inclusion at both the state and federal levels; establish overall guidelines that participating organizations follow, including funding, planning, signage, and merchandising; create an ongoing monitoring system; plan for receptive signage that considers recreation and tourism needs; adopt an appropriate highway corridor management plan to be developed and implemented; protect and enhance scenic, natural and cultural resources of the system; and invite lateral network participation from public and private sector groups.
