Abstract:
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service parking lot inventory includes parking lots owned and maintained by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on National Wildlife Refuges, National Fish Hatcheries and other properties. In a phased 5 year project, Pacific Western Technologies, a contractor for the U.S. Department of Transportation - Federal Highway Administration conducted surveys of roads and associated road features such as parking lots on National Wildlife Refuges and other properties managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Refuge. Road conditions were noted and locations collected with Trimble GPS receivers. Road Inventory Reports are available at <http://resourcegis.org/egis/ds/reportsearch.aspx> for each Refuge or Fish Hatchery. Each report details parking lot asset number, date visited, surface type, area in square feet, condition and cost to improve for the parking lots in each Refuge or Fish Hatchery. In addition to the information in the report, the dataset also includes information on the number of parking spaces per parking lot. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Information Resource and Technology Management removed all cost related information from this dataset and added the Refuge or Fish Hatchery name. Parking lots located outside of the boundaries of lands managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were deleted from this data set.
Purpose:
The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (Public Law 105-178) created the Refuge Roads Program. Refuge roads are those public roads that provide access to or within a unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System and for which title and maintenance responsibility is vested in the United States Government. Funds from the Highway Trust Fund are available for Refuge roads.To determine the relative needs of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) was asked to inventory all public access roads and parking lots and provide a condition assessment of each. An FHWA representative meets with refuge personnel to identify route segments and assign route numbers and functional classifications for each route. All segments (roads and parking lots) are mapped using Trimble GPS units and visually assessed for condition using the RSL method of evaluation developed at Utah State University.
