A potential site geometry issue with transitions

If you use secondary alignments to represent your edge of pavement or similar, keep in mind that those are also alignments that are working with (or against) your site geometry.

I am currently getting around any potential "divisions" of my ROW parcel by making a site called "Transition Alignments"

To further throw a wrench into it- imagine if you had a transition alignment in your corridor and then extracted that edge of pavement feature line from the corridor model. That is two "site geometry lines" DIRECTLY over top of one another- a topology NO NO.

So make a transition alignment site and keep your feature lines on a grading site.
