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!
