turnback
 n.— «State Highway 40 between County Road 47 and U.S. Highway 12 would become a city street, if the state approves a request by the Willmar City Council. The council Monday night voted to ask the Minnesota Department of Transportation to give the city jurisdiction over that portion of Highway 40. The turnback, as the process is called, would let the city vacate a portion of Highway 40 and undertake industrial expansion projects in the former airport.» —“Highway 40 turnback would aid the city’s economic development plans” by David Little West Central Tribune (Willmar, Minnesota) Dec. 19, 2006.
