Distance field for shortest width in a polygon

Discussion created by justgis on Dec 17, 2012
I've created a polygon that represents ROW using the erase tool on a parcel file. I have to break this ROW polygon into segments. I thought about using the street centerline file, but I'm thinking I'd end up with extra pieces of ROW where there is more than one street centerline within the polygon. I've thought about creating a point file from the centerline file and using the points to break the polygon. Once I have the polygon broken into segments, I want to put a distance field into the polygon file to show how wide the ROW is. I've searched the help file and looked at several gp tools. I'm having trouble figuring this one out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, denise
