Description:



This data layer contains a single line representation of all Newton’s streets. This includes private streets, rights of way and paper (unbuilt) streets. There are several duplicate street names in Newton.





Features and Attributes:

 

            Each line feature represents a distinct segment usually broken up at intersections but sometimes split where a change in the street’s attributes occur. For example a street may be a public way for the first 200 feet and then become private. Attributes describe the following:



1.      Street identifiers such as name and the Department of Public Works’s segment identifier used for various operations and in their Hansen software and database.

2.      Regulations such as truck exclusions and one way status.

3.      Type of street (Major artery, secondary, private, etc.)

4.      Addressing Information – not to be used as a substitute for a master address file but useful for linear referencing.

5.      The streets at the beginning and end of each segment (from and to streets).

6.      Snow plowing routes.
