I've been trying to work around a problem for while now, thought I would post to see if there is a workaround.

I'm importing a .dwg file in arcmap using the quick import tool. The problem that I am having are the individual dashes in the dashed lines are importing as individual segments. I would like to import it as a solid line or at the least quickly join them in ArcMap.

OR

Another option would be to export them as an ai file as a solid line.

Anyone have any suggestions?

The only solution I found (a few years ago) was to go back upstream and have the DWG saved/exported with a solid line, but I am eager to find out other options.

I've tried that but for some reason the ACAD file is also saved as individual segments. I can work in AutoCAD, but I am no expert. I was able to digitize some of the smaller features in ACAD to covert them to a solid line but it would take hours to get this done with all the dirt roads.
