The map above shows the existing route of the original Driftless Area Scenic Byway (dark green) along with the proposed changes to the route (highlighted in yellow). The change highlighted in brighter yellow to the right of map shows a slight modification to the byway that replaces a graveled portion of the route along County Highway A52/Sweet Ridge Drive with a paved route along Lafayette Ridge Drive to continue to connect the Lansing Harpers Road and Great River Road segments of the byway. The larger, darker yellow addition to the byway highlighted in the center and toward the left of the above map image indicates the proposed extension of the Driftless Area Scenic Byway into and through Winneshiek County, including Decorah. It is hoped to have the new byway changes signed by the Iowa Department of Transportation by late summer/fall of 2017. Submitted image.
