Sec. 23-55. Dead-end streets.


Except in unusual cases, no dead-end streets will be approved unless such dead-end streets are provided to connect with future streets in adjacent land but culs-de-sac may be permitted where the form or contour of the land makes it difficult to plat with connecting streets. Such culs-de-sac shall provide proper access to all lots and shall generally not exceed four hundred (400) feet in length, and a turnaround shall be provided at the closed end with an outside radius of not less than sixty (60) feet and a paved radius of not less than fifty (50) feet. Except in unusual cases, culs-de-sac will not be permitted where the turnaround is not clearly visible from the entrance of the street.
