Spur 533

This is a short demi-bypass for
533 north of Millstone. From what NJ Roadfan told SPUI, this may have been Bypass 533 once, but the Spur designation hints that the bypass will not be completed.

534

At one time, the west end of 534 extended along Cooper St, Delaware St, and Gloucester CR 640 to
I-295/US 130 and 44. The east end of 534 was also longer, using Atsion Rd and Burlington CR 648 to end at US 206. In fact, there was another section of 534 running from NJ 72 east to Barnegat. The two sections were supposed to be connected, but the Pine Barrens got in the way, and the eastern section was renumbered to 554 in the 1980's [Scott Colbert].

536

536 inexplicably multiplexes with
US 322 west of Williamstown. This may be in part because US 322 was planned to extend as a freeway past US 130 and toward Atlantic City, which would have left 536 on the old route.

537

537 goes east-west even though it is odd-numbered and really northeast-southwest. As of the 2009 Straight Line Diagrams, 537 west has been moved to
Spur 537, leaving 537 as eastbound-only on Federal St until it meets Market St.

Spur 537

The first iteration of Spur 537 began at
537 in Burlington, and headed east on Burlington CRs 613 and 614. CR 614 ends across the railroad tracks from 543, so if Spur 537 made it to 543, it would have had to use a short alternate alignment within Riverside Twp, such as Pavilion Ave. As of the 2009 Straight Line Diagrams, Spur 537 has been reassigned to the westbound side of 537 in Camden (Market St).

538

In the recent past, 538 turned a little north before its current western end, on what is now Gloucester CR 694, then headed north along a
551 multiplex to what is now Gloucester CR 653. It then went west and ended at US 322.

540

Officially, 540 begins at
US 130 by multiplexing with 140 west of US 40. This is a remnant of before 140 was labelled and the western 1/3 of what is now 140 was still county-maintained (the eastern 2/3 was already state-maintained as part of interchanges with the NJ Turnpike (700) and I-295). There is, of course, a BEGIN EAST 540 sign assembly immediately east of US 40 and the end of 140.

541

The Mt Holly Bypass was
Alt. 541 until it was finished; see that entry for more. While Alt. 541 existed, 541 went north into Mt Holly on what is now Burlington CR 691. A 1982 map shows 541 on the bypass and an unnumbered route going into town, albeit one that's on the secondary system. It's possible that both were somewhat signed as the same route until the Alternate route was created, or else the map was slow in de-designating the road (even NJDOT maps are not immune to typos). On an unrelated note, 541 used to run a little more south in Burlington City, on Burlington CR 632 to US 130/413.

Alternate 541

This was the name for the Mt Holly Bypass before it was completed; the Bypass is now
541. Between 1988 and 1990, 541, which had been on the bypass and possibly simultaneously through town (see the above 541 entry), was moved to only be through downtown, thus creating the Alternate route. Around 1997, the bypass was finished south of 38, and Alt. 541 died.

Truck 541

This new municipally maintained route is the first 5xx truck route to be included in the SLDs (other such as
Truck 505 are apparently unofficial). It provides an alternate western ending to 541. I don't see why this route is necessary, or why it can't become a Spur or Alternate instead.
