The State Scenic Highway System is a list of highways, mainly state highways, that have been designated by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) as scenic highways. The California State Legislature, primarily through , makes highways eligible for designation as a scenic highway. To get a highway declared scenic, the government with jurisdiction over abutting land must adopt a "scenic corridor protection program" that limits development, outdoor advertising, and earthmoving, and get Caltrans to agree that it meets the criteria. The desire to create such a designation has at times been in conflict with the property rights of abutters, for example on State Route 174. [Sacramento Bee, Scenic Highway Concept Spurs Alarm, March 25, 1999, p. N1] [Dave Moller, Union of Grass Valley, [http://www.theunion.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20040807/NEWS/40807009 CABPRO's Urke steps down] , August 7, 2004] Scenic highways are marked by the state flower, a California poppy, inside a rectangle (for state highways) or pentagon (for county highways).
