A Work Session Regarding a Resolution Supporting the Designation for Route 15/20/231/22 as an “All American Road” Within the National Scenic Byways Program


Topic Description:

The work session is an opportunity for members of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership to brief the Board of Supervisors on the recent establishment of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground area as a National Heritage Area, and a Resolution regarding the proposed designation of Route 15, Route 15/29 from its nexus in Prince William County, Route 15 through Warrenton, and Route 15/29 south of Warrenton, through Routes 20/231/22 as an “All American Road.”

All of Fauquier County is contained within the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area.  In January, 2005 the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors passed a Resolution supporting Route 15 as a State Scenic Route.  Being designated an All American Road will qualify the corridor for National Scenic Byway funding for preservation, conservation, interpretation, and heritage tourism, and will likely enhance the corridor’s ability to obtain Transportation Enhancement funds to improve the scenic quality of the roadway.
