comment Merging and joining two line feature classes while maintaining attributes from both using ArcGIS for Desktop?
@KirkKuykendall A piece of road can only either have one event scheduled or none. However, that event could be over many segments (control sections) and do not necessarily match the boundaries. i.e. it could start half way and end 3/4 of the way of a segment. So an example Route_1_control_Section_1 2.5 to 10.6, Resurface, Route_1_control_section_2 0.0 to 3.8, crackseal. Conversely 95% of the existing segments (layer_1) will get no work scheduled next year.

@KirkKuykendall - Field personnel take layer 1 and assign where where work is scheduled using excel in the form of ROUTE_ID, FROM, TO, DATE . I then took that information and created an event layer about it. The result should be merged into Layer_1 yet pereserving the attributes.

as a note, I don't want to maintain duplicate segments, Scheduled events should replace existing portions of layer 1. They'll have the attributes from layer 1 and the new ones from layer 2

comment Selecting maximum Value based on other field using ArcMap?
If you can use ArcPy or python in the data. Loading it into a list then doing a for loop makes it quiet easy. data = [(100,1), (200,1), (300,2), (500,2), (100,1), (400,3), (400,2), (200,1), (200,4)] d = {} for former, latter in data: d[former] = max(latter, d.get(former, 0))
