Using ArcGIS Pro, I have a matrix of roads clipped for a County and looking to split this line feature into 3 equal parts (e.g., east, central, west). The split options in the Toolbox seem to only split polygons and the editing split tool will only split single line features.

Is there a method for splitting an entire line shapefile into 3 equal segments?

Check out the option to split into equal parts that's found as part of the editing tools.

To apply this to every single line in a file, consider writing a python script that uses a Search Cursor to iterate through each line feature so you can edit the features one by one in an automated fashion.
