I have a large polyline shapefile that will be used for routing purposes. the data is not perfect (is it ever) and I am hoping there is an automated way to ensure that every polyline ends at a vertex.

Attached is an example where I selected just one polyline. Notice that the endpoints for the polyline extend beyond where the line intersects a different polyline. I have already "fixed" this by separating all of the polylines into line segments, but this process was arduous and lost some relationship information. I hope to be able to fix these using automation, a function which would select problem areas so they can be fixed manually, or another solution anyone might pose to this issue.

The original file contains 360k polylines, so going through the whole thing is out.

Please help!
