This website about the Battle Road Scenic Byway explains:
The communities of Arlington, Lexington, Lincoln, and Concord, the Minute Man National Historical Park, MAPC [Metropolitan Area Planning Council], and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Transportation [now Massachusetts Department of Transportation] are collaborating to help conserve this historic route and to highlight its archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational, and scenic qualities. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts officially designated The Battle Road Scenic Byway on November 6, 2006.The Scenic Byway website has links to the maps, spreadsheets, and planning documents that will be discussed at these meetings.
With funding from the Federal Highway Administration’s Scenic Byways program and a match from the Massachusetts Highway Department, MAPC is developing a Corridor Management Plan for the byway in conjunction with the project partners, to be completed in the spring of 2011.
