Corridor Management Plans

A Corridor Management Plan is a grassroots-driven document that provides a byway group with a roadmap for action.  It addresses issues as diverse as tourism development, roadway safety, highway signs, or the preservation of historic or natural features. Both the Mt. Rose Scenic Corridor Management Plan and the Washoe Valley Scenic Corridor Management Plan were adopted by the Washoe County Board of County Commissioners on January 12th, 2016.

Mount Rose Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan

The SR 431 Mount Rose Scenic Byway traverses 22 miles connecting Reno and North Lake Tahoe through the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and over the summit of Mount Rose.  The Corridor Management Plan for SR431 will leverage recreational opportunities, preserve the natural environment while developing solutions for safe, multi-modal roadways to provide opportunities for people to experience the scenic beauty.  The CMP will identify future projects, marketing strategies and funding opportunities that align with the vision of the community.

Washoe Valley Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan

The Washoe Valley Scenic byway is located between Carson City and Reno along old Hwy 395 and Eastlake Blvd providing a scenic loop around Washoe Lake at the base of the Carson and Virginia Mountain Ranges.  The Corridor Management Plan for Washoe Valley will enhance and preserve natural and cultural resources that are part of the visitor experience and to promote economic development in a way that protects the existing communities and environments.  The Corridor Management Plan will identify opportunities for enhancement and strategies for preservation to give direction for future projects.
