easily select street segment(s) between two cross streets for editing

I am working with a massive streets database, in which each street is broken into segments at each cross street.  My work involves editing groupings of these streets at a time (for example, along "5th" from street A to street F) and while manual selection of those segments is certainly possible it is very tedious.  I have been using Select by Attributes as well as the find option. 

I was thinking a program that selected only the segments of "5th" between Street A and Street F would be fantastic, although I don't know if anything similar to this exists or if it would be relatively straightforward to write. 

Does anyone have any suggestions for automating/speeding this process?
