(a) Subdivision dead end roads. These are roads less than 2,500 feet in length, open at one end only without special provision for turning around and have no collector characteristics.
(b) Subdivision connecting roads. These roads are one block long or extend on a block‑by‑block basis and have no collector characteristics.
(c) Subdivision loop roads. A road that has its beginning and ending points on the same route. It is less than one mile in length and has no collector characteristics.
(d) Other subdivision roads. These roads do not connect thoroughfares or serve major traffic generators and do not have "collector" characteristics.
(2) Residential collector roads. A road which serves as the connecting road between local residential roads and the thoroughfare system.
(a) Collector dead end roads. These roads are more than 2,500 feet in length, open at one end only without special provisions for turning around, and have collector characteristics.
(b) Collector connecting roads. The roads which serve as the connecting road system between other roads within the subdivision and the thoroughfare system.

Subdivision roads may be designated public or private. Public designations will be built to minimum construction standards of the North Carolina Department of Transportation as required under G.S. 136‑102.6. Private roads need not meet minimum construction requirements, but must meet minimum construction requirements before ever becoming a part of the State‑maintained system.
