New Jersey Roads - CR 513/Old NJ 24
and former NJ 24
State-name goodness and state-shield ugliness, NB in Clinton courtesy Lou Corsaro's camera. Don't remember if they're his or mine, though.
Old post but somewhat newer (still rather old) sign, where NJ 173 turns off of CR 513 after enjoying a short Clinton concurrency.
Looking north and south from Calais Rd./Pleasant Hill Rd. in Ironia.
Morris St. (CR 643) SB in Dover and turning onto Blackwell St. EB, which may also have been original US 46.
On the NJ 24/CR 513 multiplex, except, see, that doesn't exist. This is old 24, which was never state maintained, but merely signed over CR 517, CR 513, and CR 510. It was decommissioned in 1993 when the NJ 24 freeway was completed to I-287, but because local travelers came to knew the entire route as "24" after about 70 years of being such, the signs have remained and there are even some new ones (county-erected, of course).
EB on Main St./NB on CR 513, where CR 510 begins to the right as East Main Street. Yup, still signed like it's 24, and the plan is to leave the signs there till the paint undergoes nuclear fusion and becomes iron (the most stable element). One of the oldest 24 signs, which was probably on what is now NJ 124 east of Morristown, was recycled to NJ 10 in Livingston, but is gone now. Just like the old Hillburn Bypass that was NY 17, people still call it Route 24.
SB on CR 513 at the 513/510 junction. Note the brand-new shields that refer to NJ 24 - I guess NJDOT is more than just passive in maintaining the illusion of a state route.
Courtesy Scott Colbert, this was also SB on 513 but replaced by the new shields in the first photo above.
NB at Sussex Turnpike; the last sign is on the far corner of the intersection.
Still northbound; the green sign is at Academy St. in Rockaway.
Getting clearer now (well, on a different day), Main St. (CR 644) WB in Rockaway, and then turning right.
Macopin Road comes to a highly angled (or, in road rallying terms, "lazy") T intersection with CR 513, Union Valley Road, in West Milford. Oh yeah, and this decades-old relic is there.
