Confusion with Minimum Bounding Geometry Tool

So I have been trying for quite a while now to convert road polylines into grids of points or polygons based on survey parameters. I have a survey with 10 transverse measurements every 100 ft longitudinally. I have gotten the data into to arcmap and produced single points every 100 ft along the road polyline. I now need to create the traverse points/polygons (either would work) at the locations of the traverse(just a set of points that crosses the street)

I then used the "minimum bounding geometry" to create rectangles at the points. The tool produced 2 squares stacked on top of each other at each point.

How would I get the tool to produce n number of squares (10 for this survey)? I need one polygon or point or something at the location of each traverse measurement!

Getting very frustrated!

Okay so the "two squares" are actually just one rectangle being crossed by the original line.

So now my question becomes how do I divided this rectangle into n slices?
