Corridor Management Plan
As part of maintaining the state scenic byway designation, a current Corridor Management Plan was completed in 2014 with the guidance of a Scenic Byway Advisory Committee composed of local residents, business owners, and stakeholders. The plan identifies priority areas along the route that merit preservation and recommends specific goals to interpret, market, and publicize the byway's natural qualities, while managing development responsibly. Both the 2014 Corridor Managment Plan and the 2010 Preliminary Corridor Management Plan may be downloaded in the Related Documents section below.
