County Authority To Designate Pioneer Trail

Concerning the authority of a county to designate public roads as a section of a pioneer trail.
2016 Regular Session
Local Government
Transportation & Motor Vehicles
Bill Summary

The act authorizes a board of county commissioners to designate, by resolution, any public roads in the county as a section of a pioneer trail. A pioneer trail consists of public roads that follow as closely as possible the original trails or routes of travel of national historic significance. The board shall not designate a pioneer trail across public lands on a road administered by the federal government unless the road is designated as open to travel by the appropriate federal land management agency. If a county designates any portion of a state highway as a pioneer trail, the designation is not effective unless the general assembly, acting by joint resolution, also designates the portion of the state highway as part of the pioneer trail. A county may post, or allow to be posted, identifying and informative signs related to the pioneer trail along county roads.
