Learning Objective #5: Identifying The Byway Corridor

Describe the inventory process, including important tools, community resources and tips.

The Importance Of Mapping The Byway Corridor

A scenic byway corridor map should show the length and width of the corridor, the location of intrinsic qualities (recognizing that the scale of the map may prevent showing all details), and current land uses.

By drawing lines on a map, the byway begins taking shape and definition.

  • How long will it be?
  • Which route is the most scenic?
  • What will visitors see?
  • What are the route’s intrinsic values?

A corridor map should provide a snapshot in time of the corridor that can be used to track changes and potential threats to the corridor viewshed.
