Scenic Roads

In 1982, the state of Arizona enacted into law ARS 41-512 through ARS 41-518. These laws provide for the establishment of parkways, historic roads and scenic roads. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is the agency responsible to implement these laws.

In 1991, the federal government passed the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991, which created the National Scenic Byways Program. The Program provided for the establishment of All-American Roads and National Scenic Byways.

The purpose of these pages is to promote the creation and preservation of scenic roads in this state by these measures:

  • Assisting applicants in preparing documents for the designation of scenic roads
  • Guiding the preparation of corridor management plans
  • Providing the current inventory of the scenic roads in this state
