This project created a reusable GIS map layers for roads and road-related assets in the town of Grafton. The team inventoried roads and signs in the whole town and guardrails and sidewalks in the target area. Information such as condition, sign type, guardrail end treatment, or sidewalk material was entered into the GIS layers so that the town of Grafton has a reusable information system of its current assets. Our project also demonstrates the reusability of the database for future use by the town for paving, snow plowing, and most importantly GASB-34 analysis.
