Overview (continued from home page)

LBRS provides many benefits:

  • Improves 911 response using current, accurate data.
  • Improves accuracy of road inventory for better planning and assignment of work crews.
  • Ensures accurate data for calculating mileage affecting funding.
  • Ensures accurate municipal, township, and county boundaries for allocation of resources and costs.
  • Reduced redundant data collection efforts while sharing data among all government entities.
  • Saved taxpayer dollars. 

ODOT estimates that the LBRS project will take three years. ODOT expects to incorporate the first counties in 2018 and will complete the incorporation of counties in 2020. Also, after the project is complete, there will be an ongoing effort to update and maintain data.

LBRS Data Status

ODOT has tailored each phase of the LBRS project to meet the needs of each county based on the current status of the county's data in the LBRS program.

Currently, LBRS county data collection falls into three groups:

  • No additional data required
    • Counties that are already a part of LBRS and are currently maintained, so no additional data will be requested. These counties will continue to be a part of ongoing updates to the LBRS data.
  • Some data may be required
    • Counties where ODOT maintains addresses and centerlines. These counties will not need updates for addresses and centerlines. Some counties in this group will need to provide updated boundary files. Also, there will be follow up from ODOT with County representatives for data related questions.
  • Complete data sets required
    • Counties where some data has been collected for LBRS and is maintained in the form of shapefile or other GIS formats, but LBRS data has not been collected. These counties also need to identify a point person to help us with communication.
