Virginia Declares Dead End for Cul-de-Sacs


It's the end of the road for Virginia cul-de-sacs. And good riddance.

This spring, Gov. Tim Kaine put in place new regulations that require subdivisions to have cut-through roads connecting them to larger roads. No longer can suburban neighborhood developments - like the ones plaguing the congested Northern Virginia suburbs outside of D.C. - have just one main entrance with dead-end branches reaching out in every which way.
