The Journey Through Hallowed Ground is a registered trademark of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership.
The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Corridor Management Plan has been prepared in accordance with Paragraph 9 of Federal Register / Vol. 60, No. 96 / Thursday, May 18, 1995 (referred to as the Interim Policy) in order for the routes from Gettysburg, PA, generally following PA Route 394, US Route 15, US Route 15 Business, VA Route 20, VA Route 231, VA Route 22 and connecting routes to Monticellothe spine of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Areato be considered for nomination as an All-American Road by the Federal Highway Administration.
According to the policy A corridor management plan, developed with community involvement, must be prepared for the scenic Byway corridor proposed for national designation. It should provide for the conservation and enhancement of the Byways intrinsic qualities as well as the promotion of tourism and economic development. The plan should provide an effective management strategy to balance these concerns while providing for the users enjoyment of the Byway. The corridor management plan is very important to the designation process, as it provides an understanding of how a road or highway possesses characteristics vital for designation as a National Scenic Byway or an All-American Road.
Based on guidance provided by the Federal Highway Administration, this corridor management plan has been organized to address the four core elements that must be addressed as part of the nomination process: the significance either regionally or nationally of the Intrinsic Quality(s) along your Byway that merit national

The Corridor Management Plan was developed with extensive citizen input, both through the contributions of the Advisory Committee and numerous public meetings. Altogether, more than 50 meetings with citizens throughout the corridor were held to develop the plan, as discussed further in Chapter 1.
The plan is organized to make it easier to ascertain the core elements and the FHWA interim policy, both noted above.
Chapter 1 explains how the plan was developed with community involvement including its resulting vision and goals.
Chapter 2 first defines the corridor and then explains the national significance of the intrinsic qualities of the Byway. The corridor definition includes a description of the route, defines the width of the corridor, incorporates the places to visit along the corridor that are related to its themes, and incorporates the linkages associated with other regional resources that cross the Byway, such as recreational trails, other Byways, and travel corridors. Next, the primary intrinsic qualities are described that qualify the route for designation as an All-American Road. Historic qualities are nationally significant across all three states, while scenic qualities are nationally significant in Pennsylvania and Virginia. Recreational qualities are nationally significant in Maryland. Chapter 2 concludes with a section on other supporting intrinsic qualities that con
