I would suggest two approaches: 1. You use Network Analyst to build a network dataset (ND) from your raw street feature class. Choosing the "Any Vertex" connectivity would create a junction point feature at each street intersection which you can export and use just like any other point feature class in ArcGIS. Start with this tutorial, the best getting ...

The XY to Line tool: Creates a new feature class containing geodetic line features... ...A geodetic line is a curve on the surface of the earth. However, a geodetic line feature is not stored as a parametric (true) curve in the output, but as a densified polyline representing the path of the geodetic line. If the length of a geodetic line is ...

The first comment about merging points to lines will get you to the closest road, but this will not take into account the terrain cost (ie going through a forest or up a mountain may be a shorter distance but will take much longer than a longer distance but easier travelled clear route) To do this like the comment said it is simply a euclidian distance trig ...

Robbi I'm not able to download your sample data on this laptop, but I understand the gist. This problem lends itself to an elegant solution in a few lines of script. I assume the points are snapped exactly on line endpoints - if not, you may need to run the Snap tool on the points first because the XY locations have to be identical for it to work. This is ...

I did similar works in the past and I think using NA function as you have done here (recursively adding/removing new set of target and destinations) pretty inefficient from processing/resource-use aspects, that's why you are looking for an answer to stop processing once the process reaches a certain threshold (5000 people). Instead I strongly advise you to ...

I don't believe you can use polygons as facilities, unfortunately. I'm trying to approach this same question, and this is the best answer I've found (along the lines of your idea about intersecting ND & polygons): Closest Facility: Polygons as locations?

You can use some tools that ArcGIS for Desktop offers to run cost analysis. I would find the target area, build a cost raster based on the inputs that you deem to be important (slope, relief, land use, etc.) with self assigned values (creating your own cost for each of those in separate rasters). Once each raster is made with cost values, you can use the ...

As an answer to both Uffe Kousgaard comments about "what the 18GB file contains" compared to a routable shapefile, and a possible answer to this question: You don't explicitly state it, but I guess you used the ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap to convert your data. If not, I really recommend to have a look at it, as it contains a dedicated option to create ...

I presume you are looking for a solution in ESRI environment.That being the case customizing ESRI sample on drive time polygons or another JS sample could help you. Firstly you can find the drive time polygons for a given time period using centroid or some random locations within inner buffer of the precinct polygon.An intersection test of the resulting ...
