The CMP should have a description of the physical corridor of the road and its safety. Such description includes a discussion of the design standards for any proposed modifications to the roadway (e.g., shoulder improvements, road widening, curve straightening). The document should evaluate the likely effects of designation to the natural and cultural intrinsic qualities associated with the byway corridor.
There also should be discussion on how the "footprint" of the corridor was developed by determining why the endpoints and widths were chosen along its length.
The CMP should provide a general review of the roadway's safety and accident record to identify any improvements to the highway by design, maintenance or operation to enhance the motorist enjoyment of the scenic road. The CMP should identify areas that may be problems for drivers who are not familiar with the route and identify possible corrections.
