Description:
Abstract:
This is an extract from the TRansportation Information and Planning Support (TRIPS) mainframe database for National Highway System (NHS) Route events along State Routes. State Route identifiers and locations based on State Route Mileposts and Accumulated Route Mileage are also included for geographic reference and for use with the Washington State Department of Transportation's 24k and 500k Linear Referencing Systems.
Purpose:
To enable Geographic Information System users to more easily display and analyze a subset of the data contained in the State Highway Log in conjunction with the Washington State 24k and 500k Linear Referencing Systems.
Supplemental_Information:
National Highway System (NHS) Route events depict the FHWA approved National Highway System for Washington State Highways as reported in the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS). For this update, all approved NHS routes for calendar year (See note below and LRS_Date field) are included. Additional information can be found in the "State Highway Log", Electronic State Highway Log Data Definitions.doc, and the DOTarmcalc01.txt through the Point of Contact. NOTE: Starting with this update, a field was added (LRS_Date) and populated with the date the data was last updated. Reference to this field will be used throughout the metadata, instead of actually filling out date fields, in an effort to streamline the updating of metadata as part of automating the publication of updated datasets.

The data contained within the State Highway Log is collected and updated using contract plans, field reviews and information provided by numerous WSDOT Regional and Headquarters offices as well as other county and city sources. Due to the diverse sources of this data, no accuracy statement is available. Also, this data may have changed since the publication date. If you find an error with this data and can provide updated information, please contact the GIS and Roadway Data Office (GRDO) at (360) 570-2361 or fax (360) 570-2400. We are continuously looking for sources to provide us with quality information.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Values were obtained from the Transportation Information and Planning Support (TRIPS) database.
Completeness_Report:
The data contained within the State Highway Log is collected and updated using contract plans, field reviews and information provided by numerous WSDOT Regional and Headquarters offices as well as other county and city sources over the course of a year. This data may have changed since the publication date. Only those records that have a SRID (State Route Identifier) found in the Washington State Highways at 24K Linear Referencing System can be graphically placed as events. SRIDs that have been added or revised since the completeness date of the LRS will not place, nor will SRIDs for road features not carried by the LRS.
