A sign that says "Dead End."[1]

A dead end refers to a road that comes to an end, or a closed road. The term also is commonly used to refer to a street that ends with a cul-de-sac. Furthermore, the term is also used by detectives who reach a point in an investigation where they can no longer move forward.

When the Balunians were captured by Noah Tall, and taken to his island hideaway, the Justice League had no leads to there whereabouts, and so Robin said: "Holy dead ends, we haven't a single clue!"[2]

While trying to locate the pier that the S.S. Sea Dragon was docking at, Robin told Batman that Waterfront Street was a dead end, so they took River Road into city traffic instead.[3]
