Hi, 

As the title says, I'm trying to merge certain line segments that represent roads through geoprocessing (there is too much to do manual).  I want to merge segments of a road that do not intersect other segments (see attached pic for clarity).  Unfortunately I cannot just do a dissolve on the road name because it combines more segments than I want (and the road attribute fields do not have anything else set up to aid in this).

Is this possible?

Thanks

Have you tried changing the un-split line parameter of the Dissolve tool?

This got me what I wanted, I was not aware of that function.  Thankyou

Glad that has helped you out. It's always worth spending a little time reading the help file on tool parameters as a simple tick of a box can often have a profound influence on the output and it might just be what you need.
