Maximum distance to edge through a network

Hi all,

I've been using Pro for the past month now and in the last week I've run into a problem that seems simple, but I haven't been able to figure out.

 

I'm looking for a way to calculate the maximum distance to an edge from a point by travelling through a road network. Giving this a little more context, I have a base location of a service provider (the point) and their service area. From this, I want to use the road network to calculate the distance from their location to the farthest edge of their service area. In this example, the service provider is charges mileage by the kilometer outside of their service area, so I am interested in calculating an estimate of the max distance they will travel before charging for extra mileage.

 

I've found examples of maximum distance to polygon edge calculations, but none using a road network in the calculation.

 

Any help is appreciated!
