I recently created a map with a UTM grid. Unfortunately, the grid lines appear over the top of several labels in my map (See example).  Is there anyway to fix this and have the labels on top of the grid lines instead?

Thanks for all of the suggestions.  After further research, it appears that I need to use the "Make Grids and Graticules Layer" tool.

I am not sure but I would suspect the order that you created the labels and grid lines might have something to do with it.  Did you label first or last?

I created the grid lines first.

You can create a grid using polyline rather than using the grid in Data Frame. After creating a grid using polyline, you have to check 'Do not show lines or ticks' in 'Reference System Properties' under 'Lines'.

Make sure the layer are labeling with is on top.

Make sure you labels are not set to background draw first.

then either mask your labels with a really small halo or a really tight box.
