"Cultural quality is evidence and expressions of the customs or traditions of a distinct group of people. Cultural features include, but are not limited to, crafts, music, dance, rituals, festivals, speech, food, special events, architecture, etc. The cultural qualities of a corridor could highlight one or more significant communities and/or ethnic traditions."
