Dead end and 'T'
A 'T' intersection is a three way intersection. You can either go left or right. The street is shaped like the letter 'T' so people call it a 'T'. Sometimes they don't call it a 'T'. Other names for a 'T' intersection you might hear are more descriptive. Here is a list.
'When the road ends...'
'When you can't go anymore...'
'Three way intersection...'
At the 'T' intersection, turn right. It is just around the corner.
When you pass a gas station, you will come up to a 'T'. Take a left, and then an immediate right.
Go down this road until it ends. Turn left at the 'T' and you will see the gas station on your right.
This isn't a direction terminology, but dead end is a road that has only one entrance. That means the only way out is the way you came in. All dead end streets will have a sign at the entrance with the word 'Dead end'.
If you are going to a location that is in a dead end, someone might use this word.
Turn right on 117th. It's a dead end. We are on the right hand side at the end of the street.
There are three places to turn right. The second one is a dead end so make sure you don't go in there.
I live in a dead end street. It's nice because there isn't much traffic.
