National and state scenic byways have been the delight of the traveling public for decades. It’s no accident that billboards are prohibited on scenic byways.
However, these roads provide more than scenic views. Establishing a scenic byway protects the historical and environmental resources surrounding the area and provides local communities with economic development through tourism.
The mission of our state Scenic Byway program is to “identify, promote and protect the state’s most exceptional roadways for the traveling public and for the betterment of Nevada communities.”
We strive to cultivate strong citizen interest in Nevada’s scenic byways by advocating for protection of and promoting new byways as well as encouraging participation in the state’s Adopt-a Highway litter control program.
