Cul-de-sac
A dead end is a street with only one inlet/outlet. A dead end is also known as a cul-de-sac (/ˈkʌldəsæk/ or /ˈkʊldəsæk/[1], from French for cul ["bottom"] + de ["of"] + sac ["bag, sack"]) or no exit road in certain contexts and dialects. The term "dead end" is understood in all varieties of English, but the official terminology and traffic signs include many different alternatives. Some of these are used only regionally. In the United States and other countries, cul-de-sac is often not an exact synonym for dead end and refers to dead ends with a circular end, allowing for easy turning at the end of the road.[1] Dead ends are created in urban planning to limit through-traffic in residential areas. While some dead ends provide no possible passage except in and out of their road entry, others allow cyclists, pedestrians or other non-automotive traffic to pass through connecting easements or paths, an example of filtered permeability
