AAA is a Driving Force for America’s Roads

AAA is pretty much synonymous with American roads.

No surprise, then, that AAA was a driving force behind the America’s Byways program.

As a pioneer of scenic routes, AAA introduced maps that highlighted these roads in 1983. It was also at the forefront of the movement to address America’s crumbling roadway system, and save the historic roads it knew so well.

The Federal Highway Administration took up a study of the idea in 1988. AAA, with its long history of mapping, writing travel guides and reviewing tourist facilities along just about every inch of U.S. roadway, provided technical support and expertise that led to the eventual creation of the America’s Byways program.
