Significance: The Summit Road provides access to the summit of Scotts Bluff while preserving the natural beauty and historical integrity of the site. Built primarily by relief labor during the Depression, the road features concrete slab paving and three short tunnels. The highly erosive nature of the sandstone formation and the rugged topography of the site posed significant challenges to designers and construction forces.
