How the Connecticut River Byway came to be
In 1999, the States of Vermont and New Hampshire gave official stamp to years of planning by designating a bi-state route for the new Connecticut River Scenic Byway along New England's largest river. Their goals:

  • to balance the preservation, promotion, enjoyment, and stewardship of the Connecticut River Valley
  • to link people, organizations, communities, and agencies in promotion of the Connecticut River Byway as a tourism asset 

Connecticut River Byway Council

Members from a variety of interests within the Connecticut River Valley have formed a council to share decisions on promotion, preservation, and the future of the Byway.
