CBS4.com in Florida is reporting that a group is pushing for historic designation of U.S. Highway 1.

The Florida Keys Scenic Corridor Alliance is a volunteer group that thinks the Key’s portion of U.S.1 should be on the list of historic highways. CBS4’s news partners at the Miami Herald report the group has spent more than a year preparing their proposal as to why the 106 mile Overseas Highway, which strings together the islands that make up the Florida Keys from Key Largo to Key West should be on the list. This is the first time a bid will be made to have the highway listed.

It’s good to see the historic highways movement continue to gain traction. U.S. 1 is a terrific route — it goes through 15 states and 2,300 miles through varied terrain and has the added advantage of never being decertified.
