Cross Sections to Raster

I was able to create a contour raster based on my 2-foot contours. Pretty neat how ARcPro does that. However, I am trying to create the same thing using flood cross-sections I obtained from FEMA and the Flood Risk Information System (FRIS).  

Everywhere I search I get how to create cross-sections FROM a raster.  I want to go the other way (cross-sections TO a raster).  The attached image shows the contour raster with the cross-section lines on top.  If I can get the cross-section lines into a raster, I can then calculate the difference between the two.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

@JulioGarrido Little late to the party here, but it looks like no one has responded to your inquiry. You can use Topo to Raster (Spatial Analyst)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation or Create a TIN surface—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation to create a raster surface from cross-sections that has a fully populated elevation attribute field.
