The National Scenic Byways Program (NSB) was established in 1991. Under the program, certain roads are recognized as National Scenic Byways or All-American Roads based on their archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational, and scenic qualities. There are now (as of 2010) 150 such designated Byways in 46 states. The most scenic of the roads are designated All-American Roads.
