FDOT Corridor Modeling - End Condition Exceptions Issue

I am having an issue with using End condition exceptions on my template.  Currently my template generally ties down to a certain elevation due to linear ponds running along the road, however when the ponds end I would like the end condition to tie down to the existing terrain.  When I apply and End Condition Exception it works to tie down to the existing terrain, however it messes with other aspects of the template (ie. shoulder slopes). Am I missing something?
