Pent Road

Pent Road

A street that is closed at its terminal points.

The term pent, which means penned or confined, is used to distinguish this type of road from an open highway that leads to other thoroughfares. Pent roads are frequently adjacent to the lands of persons who are constructing connecting arteries across their own property to secure needed outlets.
