41

41 was defined in 1927 to connect all the routes east of Camden, as a bypass further out than
25 and 45 (Crescent Blvd). The route of 41 was chosen to use mostly existing roads, except around Haddonfield, where it would bypass to the east on a mostly new road. The map in the S41 entry shows where 41 (bright red) went in 1927. Here is when each section was built or taken over by the state:

sectionlocationdate
147 to 1681928
561 to 70
takeover70 to 381936


As you can see, the rest of the bypass, from 168 (then 42) north to Berlin Rd (561), was never built. In the 1953 renumbering, 41 kept its number. However, NJDOT realized that it would never finish the Haddonfield bypass and assigned 41 to the route through downtown Haddonfield as far as 168(which was signed TEMPORARY 41 until around 2001). The constructed part of the bypass became unnumbered, and was soon numbered 154. Additionally, the county-maintained section of 41 was assigned the county number 573 at some point.
The routes near 41 are shown to the left, with pre-1953 numbers in plain circles, and post-1953 numbers in the black-background shields. County route numbers are given in squares, red routes are state-maintained, and maroon routes are either county-maintained or just not there. In 1960, 41 was relocated at the north end to bypass the 38/73 interchange, which had been a circle. In 1984, state maintenance was extended north to Lenola Rd, right at the Moorestown border.

S41

An unnumbered state route was defined in 1923 (it would have been numbered 26 in the 1926 plan) to run "From Route No. 2 [post-1927
25] of the State Highway System at Five Points, in the county of Burlington, by way of Moorestown, Evesboro Cross Road, Medford and Atsion, to Route No. 3 [post-1927 43], of the State Highway System at Hammonton, in the county of Atlantic, to be numbered by the State Highway Commission, together with a spur from said route at Evesboro, in the county of Burlington, to Merchantville, in the county of Camden" [Jimmy and Sharon Williams].
In the 1927 renumbering, S41 was assigned to a variation on this route, bypassing Camden to the northeast, as seen in the 1927 map at left. The spur of the route became roughly 40 west of S41. S41 was all built and upgraded between 1930 and 1932, and remained that way for a while. An extension southeast to 42 was proposed in 1938; this was numbered by NJDOT as S41A. Here's a table of when each section was built or taken over:

sectionlocationdate
(73) 5A/6A/7AACE to US 301970
4US 30 to Cooper Rd1931
3Cooper Rd to Maple Ave1930
2Maple Ave to 411930
141 to Tacony-Palmyra Bridge1931/32


In the 1953 renumbering, S41 was renumbered to 73 to match PA 73, along with the proposed southern extension that had been S41A. This extension was finally built and taken over by NJDOT in 1970, but even then only south to the Atlantic City Expressway (446). South of there, the road is officially 73, but is signed only as Spur 561, even though the latter route officially no longer exists. The routes near S41 are shown to the right, with pre-1953 numbers in plain circles, and post-1953 numbers in the black-background shields. County route numbers are given in squares, red routes are state-maintained, and maroon routes are either county-maintained or just not there.

S41A

S41A was the number given by NJDOT to a planned southern extension of
S41. Details are in the S-41 entry.

ROUTE NO. S-41, Extension. Continuation of Route S-41 from Route 43 in Berlin borough, Camden county, to Route 42 in Folsom borough in Atlantic county through the Blue Anchor and Mays Landing roads in Camden and Atlantic counties. L.1938, c. 299, p. 693, s. 1.

S41N

S41N began as a spur of pre-1927 2, defined in 1922 from Five Corners (Parry) to the Palmyra ferry docks. It doesn't appear in the 1927 renumbering or 1929 amendments, but it is shown on a 1941 NJDOT map. In the 1953 renumbering it became unnumbered and was soon numbered
155. Some time later, it was given back to the county. See the map on the right above in the 41 and S41 entries for context.

42

42 was defined in 1927 to provide a second route from Camden to Atlantic City. It would use the Black Horse Pike (a name given to the route in the early 1900s) from Camden to McKee City, where
48 picked up the route the rest of the way to Atlantic City. Here's a table of when each section was taken over or built:

5Gloucester/Atlantic county line to 5591931
6559 to 501931
6C50 to US 401931


In 1953, 42 kept its number north of Williamstown. South of Williamstown, it was taken off of US 322. The North-South Freeway, a realignment of 42, was built as a connection between the Ben Franklin Bridge in downtown Camden, the Walt Whitman Bridge (opened 5/16/1957), and the Atlantic City Expressway (opened 1964):

sectionlocationdate

14E/14F/15B/15C168 to ACE1959


The old route of 42 became 168 when the new freeway opened. 42 may have extended to US 30 before the current Ben Franklin Bridge approach was built, though the state never took over maintenance inside of the Camden city line at Ferry Ave. In 1957, the North-South Freeway north of I-295 was designated Federal Aid Interstate 109. The number I-80S was assigned by AASHTO in 12/1959, and this was changed to I-76 in 12/1964. In 1/1973, I-76 and I-676 swapped places north of the Walt Whitman Bridge, and so the North-South Freeway became I-676 through downtown Camden.

43

43 was the pre-GR state route following
US 30. In 1916, 3 was defined as a route from Camden to Absecon. It was soon built and taken over by the state:

In 1927, 3 was renumbered to 43. 45 (Crescent Blvd) was built just east of the Camden line, also in 1927, bypassing Camden to the east. At some time after 1941, the short stub of 43 west of 45 was given back to the county. In 1952, 43 was relocated in Absecon from New Jersey Ave onto Absecon Blvd. Around this time, 43 may have taken over 56 to Atlantic City. In the 1953 renumbering, all of 43 was renumbered as part of US 30. It appears Spring Garden Rd in Winslow was taken over by the state as Section 11 of 43 in 1955, two years after the rest of 43 disappeared; the 143 entry has more info.

44

44 is a section of old
US 130 from Bridgeport to Thorofare. Pre-GR, 44 extended north to 45 south of Camden along US 130, and south to Salem along US 130 and 49. 17-S was legislated in 1923 as a route from Westville southwest along the Delaware River to Penns Grove. It was numbered 44 in the 1927 renumbering. Here's a table of when each section was built or taken over:

(17-S) takeover?High Hill Rd, Logan to Gloucester/Salem county line1927
(17-S) takeover?Gloucester/Salem county line to Penns Grove1926


44 was later extended to Salem to meet with 45 and 49, including a bypass of Penns Grove (the old alignment was given up by the state):

In 1947, the interchange between 44 and 45 in Westville was built, and 44 north of 45 (which led to 47) was cut off from the rest of 44. I don't know what happened to it, but it was eventually given up by the state. The Camden Freeway was planned as an upgrade of 44 from Camden southwest to the proposed Delaware Memorial Bridge at Deepwater. Here's when each section was built:

In 1957, the Camden Freeway was designated Federal Aid Interstate 108. This was given the number I-295 by AASHTO in 12/1959. The rest of the Camden Freeway was built later as I-295, and bypassed the original freeway for a distance north of Bridgeport. I don't know if Hollywood Ave, which was necessary to return to the old alignment at Carneys Point, was ever state-maintained. In the 1953 renumbering, 44 was renumbered to US 130 north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge approach (opened 8/16/1951) and 49 south of the bridge. The old alignments of 44 at Deepwater and north of Bridgeport became unnumbered, but were soon given back the number 44. In 1968, when I-295 was finished north of Deepwater, the connection at Hollywood Ave was cut and US 130 was moved back to the old road, leaving only the section of 44 north of Bridgeport (which had its southern end cut back to Barker Ave at some point).

S44

S44 was taken over or built by NJDOT in 1937 as a connection from
44 at Bridgeport to the ferry to Chester, PA. It was part of US 322, and so in the 1953 renumbering it was removed. The Commodore Barry Bridge opened on 2/1/1974, bypassing the ferry. US 322 was put on the new bridge and the unused ferry approach, now cut off on the Bridgeport side by the new interchange and thus only accessible via non-state roads, became unsigned 324.

ROUTE NO. S-44. Spur extending westerly from vicinity of Bridgeport to pier of Bridgeport-Chester ferry.
ROUTE NO. S-44. Beginning where Kings highway intersects State highway Route 40 and extending thence southwestwardly along Kings highway through the township of Delaware and boroughs of Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Audubon, Mt. Ephraim, Bellmawr and Brooklawn, a distance of six and one-half miles more or less to the intersection of said Kings highway with Route 45. L.1938, c. 374, p. 944, s. 1.

S44A

S44A was defined by the legislature in 1938 as part of another eastern bypass to Camden, along what is now
CR 551 (Kings Highway). It would have begun at 45 (Crescent Blvd), the inner bypass, at Brooklawn, and run northeast through Haddonfield to meet 40 at 41, another bypass. The part through and north of downtown Haddonfield became part of 41 in 1953 when NJDOT decided not to build the bypass of Haddonfield on 41.

ROUTE NO. S-44. Beginning where Kings highway intersects State highway Route 40 and extending thence southwestwardly along Kings highway through the township of Delaware and boroughs of Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Audubon, Mt. Ephraim, Bellmawr and Brooklawn, a distance of six and one-half miles more or less to the intersection of said Kings highway with Route 45. L.1938, c. 374, p. 944, s. 1.

44T

A tunnel was planned across the Delaware River from roughly Paulsboro to Essington, PA, and the approach was planned as 44T, forming a line from the tunnel to
42 between Blackwood and Williamstown.

ROUTE NO. 44T. Beginning at the Plaza of the Gloucester county tunnel and from thence to Route No. 44 at or near Paulsboro, from thence to form a connecting link with Route No. 45, from thence to form a connecting link with Route No. 47, and from thence to form a connecting link with Route No. 41. L.1938, c. 367, p. 935, s. 1.
ADDITION TO ROUTE NO. 44T. Beginning at a point where Route No. 47 intersects Route No. 41 and from thence to form a connecting link with Route No. 42. L.1939, c. 264, p. 684, s. 1.

45

6 was laid out by the New Jersey legislature in 1916 to run south from Camden to Mullica Hill, and then around all three sides of a triangle with corners at Mullica Hill, Bridgeton, and Salem. In 1922 the route was extended to the proposed bridge to Philadelphia in Camden. In the 1927 renumbering, 6 from Camden to Salem became 45. Here is a table of when each section was taken over or built by the state along the origjnal route via Gloucester, ending at the Camden border on Broadway:

A bypass of Camden was soon built as the southern half of Crescent Blvd; at Crescent Circle
25 continued west to the Ben Franklin Bridge in downtown Camden. Here is when that bypass was built:

The old alignment through Gloucester stayed state-maintained for a while; a 1941 NJDOT map shows it. The map also shows a state-maintained spur in Gloucester, probably using Jersey Ave and Charles St to the Delaware River. In the 1953 renumbering, 45 remained 45. However, the north end was truncated to the junction with former 44 at Westville, north of which 45 became US 130.

US 46

US 46 was assigned in 1936 along
6 when it was complete across the state except for the southern bypass of Paterson. All of the history of that route can be found on that page. US 46 entered Paterson from the west via S6, which ended at the city line. From there it used McBride Ave, Spruce St, and Market St to downtown, and Market St east from downtown, from which it went south on 3 just west of the Passaic River, picking up 6 again. A 1937 map shows 6 still under construction west of 2 (now 17). If that's true, US 46 went north on 2 and west on Essex St, which becomes Market St in Paterson. When the Paterson bypass on 6 was finished in 1940 (I think), US 46 was moved to it.
Originally US 46 crossed the Delaware River at Columbia, and ended in Portland PA. By 1941, it was moved to cross the river at Delaware on current 163; current (and former) US 46 west of there was part of 8. I-80 west of Columbia opened on 12/16/1953. This was planned as an extension to US 46 but was designated US 611 in 11/1953, with the Pennsylvania side becoming Alt. US 611. On 12/1/1953, the new Portland-Columbia bridge (now 94) opened. US 46 was moved back to the NJ side to end in Columbia at US 611 at the bridge. In 4/1965, US 611 was removed from NJ and the bridge became 94, while the freeway portion became simply I-80, and US 46 stayed the same. In 1973, I-80 was completed to the east, and US 46 was extended about 1/2 mile to end at it (only the eastbound side; the westbound side must merge with 94 and doesn't appear to multiplex).
Until 1941, US 46 used 159 in Fairfield. When the new alignment was built to the north, the old route became 6M, and then 159 in the GR. US 46 (and 6 when it existed) has always ended in the middle of the George Washington Bridge, instead of either extending into New York or ending at US 1/US 9.

47

47 runs from Wildwood northwest to the Camden area. Pre-GR, 47 and
49 were flipped south of Millville, and 47 went east to Tuckahoe where it ended at 50. 47 was 49 north of 83 in South Dennis and S49 south of it. The county maintained part at the south end is signed as CR 661 [Chris Mason]. The Malaga bypass was built around 1930; before that 47 went through the town on Old Delsea Dr. Until 6/17/1975, 47 used N High St in Millville, one block west of current 47. The county maintained section (south of Susquehanna Ave in Wildwood) is signed CR 624 [Chris Mason]. 47 is the longest NJ state route.
