a. Certain portions of the State highway system are notable for their scenic, historic,
recreational, cultural, and archaeological value and are worthy of official designation
as scenic and historic highways to provide special consideration of their unique features
and special role in the highway system;
b. The public interest would be served by the creation of a coordinated scenic and
historic highways program to enhance recreation, preserve and protect scenic, historic,
recreational, cultural, and archaeological resources, encourage economic development
through tourism, and educate the public about the history and culture of this State;
c. New Jersey lags behind other states around the country in terms of preserving roadways
which have scenic, historic, and other intrinsic qualities; and

throughout the State.
