The Byways Program is carried out in collaboration with the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT). A "Byway" is a transportation route which is adjacent to or travels through an area that has particular intrinsic scenic, historic, natural, cultural, recreational, or archaeological qualities. It is a road corridor that offers an alternative travel route to our major highways, while telling a story about Delaware’s heritage, recreational activities, or beauty. CHAD assists Delaware communities in preparing nominations for new Byways. This is done in several ways: (a) by preparing manuals that guide communities through the process of preparing their nomination; (b) by preparing research guides that reference the resources and places where people could learn about their road; and (c) by undertaking research and preparing nominations directly.
