List of United States federally maintained roads
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2013)|
The vast majority of roads in the United States are maintained by the state or lower-level agencies. However, some roads are maintained by the federal government. Most of these are minor roads in national parks and national forests, which are not listed here. However, a few roads have been developed to connect sites in the national park system or to protect routes of scenic or historic significance, and some roads in national parks or National Parkways are major enough to list.
Roads that are part of other park service sites:
- Clara Barton Parkway in Clara Barton National Historic Site
- Colonial Parkway in Colonial National Historical Park
- Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park
- Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
- Rock Creek and Potomac Parkway in Rock Creek Park
- Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park
