Corridor Partnership Plan

The Corridor Partnership Plan is a community-based strategy that balances conservation of the Road’s intrinsic qualities with its use and enjoyment. Used as a model for communities along the Road, guidelines address conservation, enhancement, economic development and tourism.

The original Corridor Partnership Plan was first developed in 2001. An update to the Plan began in January of 2012 and was completed in 2014. The updated plan examines the changing external influences on the Maryland portion of the Historic National Road over the last decade, including land use, transportation and trends in heritage tourism. Design guidelines are also being developed with the assistance of the Maryland State Highway Department to help local governments, citizens, commercial and residential property owners shape new development in a manner that is sensitive to the National Road’s historic context.
