Byron Overlook - Environmentally Friendly Welcome Center


The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) would like to welcome you to the Byron Overlook Welcome Center Homepage. It is our intention to use this Web site to provide you with the latest information available on this project.

The Presentation Panel at Byron Overlook describing the Monocacy National Battlefield.

The Maryland State Highway Administration has received funding for the planning and conceptual design phase to upgrade the existing Scenic Overlook along northbound I-270 in Frederick County, Maryland to provide an Environmentally friendly Welcome Center that would have low or no impact upon the environment. A design competition is being held to stimulate a variety of innovative design concepts for a facility that is intended to be independent from the need to rely on traditional energy, water supply and wastewater treatment technologies. It is the intent that this facility, when constructed, will be self-contained and self-sustaining.
