Scenic Highway 11 Corridor Study


Public Meeting Notice
Click here for an update on the Scenic Highway 11 Corridor Study!

We encourage you to take this quick online Visual Preference Survey

Pickens County is home to one of the most beautiful stretches of Highway 11, also known as the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Byway.  It is by luck and appreciation of this beauty that a large part of the area has remained undeveloped.  As our county continues to grow, Pickens County wants to ensure it grows in the best way possible.  And we need your help!

Pickens County has partnered with the Appalachian Council of Governments to undergo a Corridor Study on Highway 11.  First and foremost, the goal of this study is to involve the community in developing a long-term vision for Highway 11. Out of that vision, there will be recommended policies and actions to guide how the corridor should be maintained or changed in the future. Policies and actions could be in the form of design guidelines, infrastructure improvements, tree preservation, setbacks, etc.

Public engagement is crucial to this process, so we ask you to stay tuned as we share more details about this study and ways to get involved!
