Proposed scenic byway through the Ozarks awaiting local approval

A proposed 375-mile-long scenic byway is headed to several communities for public meetings and a vote of approval. 

The Scenic Missouri group submitted the proposal, called “Ozark Run,” to the Missouri Department of Transportation, which is authorized to create a state system of scenic byways to preserve cultural, natural, archeological, rustic, historic or recreational roads for the traveling public.

The proposal involves six routes (Missouri Routes 21, 185, 106, and 19, and U.S. Routes 63 and 160), 11 counties (St. Louis, Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, Iron, Reynolds, Shannon, Oregon, Howell, Ozark and Taney), and eight incorporated towns (Hillsboro, Sullivan, Caledonia, Centerville, Ellington, Eminence, Alton and Forsyth).
