Byways 101

Part 1: Program Overview

What Was The America’s Byways Resource Center's Role With The Program?

The America’s Byways Resource Center, originally the National Scenic Byways Resource Center, was established by Congress in 1999 as a division of the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission in Duluth, Minnesota. Funding was provided through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration.

The Resource Center served national, State, and Tribal scenic byway organizations through the United States, providing education, training and resources. In August 2011, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation determined that the Resource Center was sufficiently funded. The Resource Center closed to the public in June 2012.
