Scenic byway receives federal funding

A 133-mile stretch of two highways in southwestern Colorado is among three scenic byways in Colorado that has been awarded funding from the Federal Highway Administration.

The Unaweep-Tabeguache Scenic and Historic Byway will receive $72,000 for the development of a corridor management plan. The byway runs from Whitewater to Placerville along Colorado highways 141 and 145.

The 57-mile Collegiate Peaks Byway in south-central Colorado and the 116-mile Trail of the Ancients in extreme southwestern Colorado also received funding. The Trail of the Ancients received $84,000 for interpretation, wayfinding and marketing, while the Collegiate Peaks received $36,160 for historic wayside signs.

In all, the Federal Highway Administration handed out $40.6 million to 94 projects in 39 states.
