New National Scenic Byway Designated in Florida

Written By: Visitors Bureau

On February 16, 2021 the U.S. Department of Transportation/Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) notified the River of Lakes Heritage Corridor (ROLHC) that they had been designated a National Scenic Byway and as a result are now officially a member of the nationwide collection of 184 America’s Byways® located in 48 states.  

The River of Lakes Heritage Byway (ROLHB) is a 156-mile corridor located in Volusia and Seminole Counties that was first designated a Florida Scenic Highway in 2009. Today the byway is part of the collection of 27 State of Florida designated corridors.  With today’s announcement there are now eight Florida byways that have also received the coveted federal designation.

Designation is recognition that a corridor’s roads not only pass through places, but that they are places; places that offer exceptional travel experiences. One more thing to add to your next drive across the state line.
