Hi,  I am new to DEM and LiDAR. Can I take a .shp line, overlay it on a DEM assign elevations to both ends of the line and cut my rastor  (road) image to show a culvert?  I need to get past the digital dam the road surface creates. I am clueless how to accomplish this, I rarely work with raster, mostly vector until now.

thank you
