A "circuit route component" road is any given road that connects to another road that connects to another road that connects to the first, forming a triangle, square, or other closed circuit.
Often, a circuit route component road is a component of several circuit routes. In part, this is due to the geography of the area, which has many small streams. In part, this is due to the land-use patterns evolving out of the Planning Commission's "Corridors and Wedges" concept in the Master Plan. Most are also Snow Emergency Routes.
Circuit Routes are how one might go "driving around".
