Scenic and Historic Roads
Legislation protects the scenic and historic fabric of the landscape of Anne Arundel County through regulating development along designated Scenic and Historic Roads. Roads and thoroughfares throughout the County tell a story of how an area has developed, from the deeply rutted roads in southern Anne Arundel County, to the village like road systems that surround historic train depots in northern Anne Arundel County.
Development along these roads is guided by legislation and our office works closely with developers, engineers, and traffic planners to ensure that historic and scenic roads are preserved while maintaining applicable safety standards. Compliance with Scenic and Historic Roads regulations is managed by the Cultural Resources Program.
