Scenic Greetings from Scenic America

It has been an unforgettable year and we are grateful for your ongoing support.  We wish you a very happy holiday season and look forward to more scenic successes in 2021. 


Appropriations Funding Update

The Senate included $35 million for the National Scenic Byways Program in its appropriations bill to fund the program for the first time in nine years. Unable to finalize the overall spending package, Congress passed a continuing resolution on December 11 and negotiations have carried on throughout this week. We will keep you updated on the latest developments.   


 Byways Announcement Update

The announcement of the newest National Scenic Byways is expected soon, marking the first time since 2009 that roadways have received this designation. Although an announcement was anticipated by December 22, the designations may be delayed until after the new administration takes office. The revitalization of this program is a direct result of Scenic America’s advocacy efforts. Sixty-four roadways are under consideration for this distinction.
