Hello Everyone,

Background - Local Government, ArcGIS Server 9.3.1, SQL, Local Government ELA

We have recently discussed linear referencing with our traffic engineers. We are looking to take advantage of linear referencing to handle such attribution as speed limits, lane counts, traffic counts, truck and height restrictions etc.

One of our main concerns moving forward is directed towards the interaction of linear referencing and networking/routing.

How does this design (linear referencing) interact with network analyst?

Will the attribution still be accessible for use as network attributes (impedence, cost, restrictions etc?)

Will we need to export event layers to feature classes in order for network analyst to access the data?

We would really appreciate any advice and guidance going forward. Thanks in advance!!!!
