cul-de-sac(redirected from the cul-de-sac)
A circular street with only one opening for ingress or egress. I grew up on an idyllic cul-de-sac in the suburbs with many of my friends as neighbors. Aw man, this is a cul-de-sac and not a regular street? Guess I'm not cutting through to that neighborhood from here then.
