Maryland’s 18 designated byways encompass 2,487 miles of beautiful roads and offer a taste of Maryland’s scenic beauty, history and culture. Over the past 25 years, the Maryland State Highway Administration’s Scenic Byways Program has worked collaboratively with its sister agencies and programs, along with support from the Federal Highway Administration’s National Scenic Byway Program, to establish and develop the program into a system of byways linked together to create distinctive travel destinations throughout the state.

The Maryland State Highways Administration’s Office of Environmental Design administers the byway program and works with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration on byway grant awards and grant management.
