Surface Corridor is NOT triangulating entire corridor boundary

I have created a surface from a corridor.  I set the boundary of the surface to the daylight of the corridor.  In some areas of the corridor the surface does not triangulate see attached.  Has anyone had this problem?  How do I fix the issue?

It looks like your daylight feature lines are broken somewhere along the corridor, so the boundary is made from disconnected sections of feature line.  When the corridor builds do you get any error messages?  Try turning off all of the other feature lines so that you can see exactly what is being used for the boundary.

Use "corridor shrinkwrap" as the boundary for your surface within the corridor settings. If "corridor shrinkwrap" is not an option, just add another baseline ( a dummy baseline) and you will then have the shrinkwrap option.
