Label Style.

I need some help on a label style. I have several polylines (shown). When I label them, instead of labeling the length of that particular line I get every length of touching polylines. I would like to know how can I label the section with the 2 arcs and not instersecting sections.

Not sure what version you are using, but 2013 you can create a label by picking 2 points. This can also be done using parcels with a span outside segment parcel label. You could also draw a seperate polyline over top the existing line the whole distance you want to label.
