How was this created? Is it a note, a label, or something else? Is your view rotated, or is it "north up"?
You may be seeing the same issue discussed in this thread. If so, the "fix" was to place the inline leader portion as part of the label cell, instead of using the inline leader from the tool.

It's a modified FDOT note. The view is rotated to the sheet border orientation. What a bizarre fix to something that seems so trivial.
I wholeheartedly agree. There are a lot of "little things" that really just don't allow any flexibility in plans creation. There is an FDOT CADD Forum, where you may be able to get ideas from others working with the same set of standards.
