Could I create a raster depicting cells that are visible from a road?

I have a 30m DEM raster and a polyline shapefile for a road network.  I would like to produce a 30m raster of I/0 values showing whether or not each cell is visible from a road up to 2000m.  I'd like to use a height of 2m above the road to represent the height of a commercial vehicle.

Is this possible with the viewshed tool?  The examples I have found work best for smaller point shapefiles, like whether a tower is visible, and do not help for a large, polyline feature.

Thank you for any ideas!
