AMHERST, Va. (AP) - Amherst County officials want state officials to designate U.S. 60 as a Virginia scenic byway.

The News & Advance (https://bit.ly/1BP63as ) reports that the Board of Supervisors has authorized informing the Commonwealth Transportation Board that the county supports the designation for the highway.

In 2000, Congress designated a 180-mile section of U.S. 60 in West Virginia as the Midland Trail National Scenic Byway. The Amherst County board approved a resolution in 2013 supporting extending the national byway designation to the highway in Virginia.
