Volusia County, FL - The Florida Scenic Highways Program recognizes the best of the best in roads and the communities that they connect throughout the state. The Halifax Heritage Byway is now part of the program. It's comprised of three loops - In-Town, Riverside, and Oceanside.
“The Halifax Heritage Byway is a route that visitors can get excited about and residents can be proud of,” said the Florida Department of Transportation’s District Five Secretary Jared W. Perdue. “This byway falls right in line with what the State’s Scenic Highway Program is all about and deserves the official designation as it showcases the scenic drive through Volusia County’s coastal beach towns.”
According to FDOT, the Halifax Heritage Byway focuses on the nearly 300 years of history and heritage found along the Halifax River region of Florida.
The Byway Organization presented its Byway Management Plan to the Scenic Highway Program Advisory Committee on September 1, 2020. That submittal was the culmination of a years-long effort to document the region’s story, resources, and community passion.
The Halifax Heritage Byway now becomes the 27th scenic highway in Florida, and its length adds to the nearly 1,600 miles of designated roads that carry the title of Florida Scenic Highway.
