Virginia's Scenic Byway program recognizes that scenic roads are key community assets. It is part of Virginia's tourism promotional strategy to stimulate local economies.
There are more than 2,500 miles of Scenic Byways in Virginia, including many miles in Fauquier County, Loudoun and Fairfax Counties. Prince William County currently has none.
The proposed Prince William byways, listed in the left column, are special areas. They have 11 nationally recognized historic sites, two state listed historic sites, mountain vistas, and no detracting properties, billboards or trash.
The Scenic Byway designation does not limit road improvements, and roads are eligible for federal scenic byway funds.
Protecting our scenic byways is an inexpensive and forward-looking way to highlight Prince William's unique assets and build a bright future for County residents.
Following four public meetings, Prince William Supervisors voted unanimously to endorse the proposed Byways on December 8, 2015 and January 19, 2016.
Supervisors are scheduled for a final vote this coming Tuesday, November 22, at the 2pm Board meeting. After this, the last step is approval by the Commonwealth Transportation Board in January 2017.
