Working in conjunction with Western Illinois University, this project entails the verification of 911 addresses for every structure in Hancock County, Illinois. Phase I was for all rural roads and Phase II is for the incorporated areas.
Mid-West GIS is performing all field verifications. This means that each road is driven and the addressable structure is visited in person by the GIS/GPS Specialist. The structure is identified, the street name is verified and finally checked for a 911 address post, mailbox number, or house number. Structures that are not addressed, such as barns, garages, and other outbuildings, are noted as well.
Phase I of this project took approximately 60 days, and Phase II is expected to take the same. It is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2020.
