While the Roads and Highways Dev Summit demo theater couldn't be given in person in Palm Springs, the session was recorded and is now available for anyone interested in learning more about the Location Referencing REST API and how your organization can utilize it.

Hi Roads and Highways users,

In past years members of the Esri Roads and Highways team have attended the GIS-T conference to meet with current users for open discussion about the software.  While unfortunately the conference is cancelled this year, we’d still like the opportunity to connect with you for a meeting around the software.  Potential discussion topics include:

  • Your usage of the software
  • Any challenges you’re encountering while using the software
  • Questions you have about the future development
  • Your feedback on potential design decisions for future development

If you’re interested in meeting, you can find available meeting times in April, May, or June and schedule your meeting here  We'd ask that only users/business partners that are in production with, currently piloting, or implementing Roads and Highways sign up for a meeting.

Hi Everyone,


Registration for the Roads and Highways holistic testing in November is now live.  See the information below to register for the event.


Greetings from Redlands!

Please join us on Tuesday, November 5th through Wednesday, November 6th for a Roads and Highways holistic test event using ArcGIS Pro 2.5 at Esri Headquarters in Redlands, California.


ArcGIS Pro in 2019 is a professional, high-performance, high-productivity GIS Workstation. Users transitioning from ArcMap will see that their familiar GIS functionality is available in ArcGIS Pro with better performance and usability. New users to ArcGIS will find in ArcGIS Pro a complete standalone 2D/3D desktop GIS, and a premium App for advanced visualization, analysis, and sharing across the ArcGIS Platform.


Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro provides familiar tools to complete LRS editing workflows such as creating, realigning, reassigning, and calibrating routes. In addition, new capabilities like the Locate Route and Measure tool, and an enhanced centerline selection tool, will be available to Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro users. Additionally, services published using ArcGIS Pro support new capabilities within web applications, like Event Editor, including undo/redo capabilities.


For this session, we are looking for LRS editors with familiarity using Roads and Highways in ArcMap as well as LRS/GIS managers and administrators who lead organizations familiar with Roads and Highways in a production environment. While much of the testing will be from a set of prepared exercises, participants are encouraged to bring their own established organizational workflows, processes, and methods to exercise during exploratory testing time provided in the session.


Testing machines, databases, data, and workflows will be provided for all participants. There is no need to bring your own data to the session. We are expecting that you will provide critical feedback on current Roads and Highways capabilities and features in ArcGIS Pro, as well as any functional gaps, and on the comparative user experience between Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro 2.5 and ArcMap.


This event will take place at the Esri-Redlands Office, 380 New York St Redlands, CA 92373, on Tuesday, November 5th through Wednesday, November 6th from 8:30AM to 5PM daily.  Remote attendance is not being offered for this session, on-site attendance only.


Due to the limited number of seats available for this event, we ask that any organization attending send a maximum of two participants from their organization. Please RSVP by Friday, September 27th.


If you are interested in participating, please RSVP to:

Thank You,

Hi Everyone,


The Roads and Highways team is holding a holistic testing session for Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro.  The details for the session are below:


Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro Holistic Testing
Esri Campus, Redlands, CA
November 5-6, 2019


All current Roads and Highways users are invited to attend.  There are space limitations, so we ask that each organization attending plan to send a maximum of 2 individuals.  We ask that those individuals attending the session have familiarity using Roads and Highways.  The session is not designed to be a training or introduction to Roads and Highways, but instead will involve a series of hands on exercises focused on the new and expanded capabilities of Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro to gather feedback from users to help improve future development on the product in ArcGIS Pro.


We'll follow up with formal invitation in August with additional logistics but wanted to give those interested in attending time to begin any approval process they might need to attend.  Any additional questions can be directed to Nathan Easley (


We look forward to seeing you in November.
