Does anyone know how to merge attributes quickly in ArcMap 9.3?

I have a road polyline layer where there are ~100 segments that constitute US 29. I would like these 100 segments to be one segment US 29.

Currently I am selecting by attributes and using the editor to merge. This works fine, but I have a lot of roads that I need to merge. I really don't want to do this manually.

Thanks,
kru

That did it. Thought it would be simple, but I couldn't remember.

Thanks a lot,
