151

151 ran along the one-way pair of 10th St and 11th St from Wright Ave (at
I-676) east to an interchange at US 30, and then north along Flanders Ave to Federal St (CR 537). The eastbound route along 10th St and Flanders Ave was .61 miles long. Since sometime after 1969, the road has been locally maintained by Camden, and still serves traffic from I-676 north to US 30 east.

ROUTE NO. 151. Beginning on Route No. 25 (entrance road) in the vicinity of Cooper river, Camden city, New Jersey, and running thence, via the Camden business center to the Pennsylvania ferry at the foot of Market street and Federal street, Camden city. L.1946, c. 115, p. 543, s. 1.
151: [unsigned] Former Route 151 - Camden. 1953 renumbering.

152

The first incarnation of 152 was a .68-mile long section of road in Trenton along the Delaware River from Willow St south to Warren St. At the time,
29 probably left the river at Willow St and ended in downtown Trenton. 152 does not appear on a 1952 map, but is on a 1960 map (as an unnumbered road). At some later time (before 1969), 152 was renumbered as part of 29. The current 152 was legislated in 1969 as a state takeover of the bridge from Somers Point to Longport; it was numbered because of its closeness to 52. The road was taken over on 1/19/1970, and a new bridge was built in 1988 to modern standards, abandoning the old bridge to the role of a fishing pier.

ROUTE NO. ----. Beginning at or in the vicinity of the westerly abutment line of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge over Risley Channel in Atlantic county and thence proceeding toward Somers Point in said county and being presently designated as Atlantic County Route No. 20. Added by L.1968, c. 397, s. 1, eff. Jan. 10, 1969.

153
The Secaucus bypass on 3 opened on 8/1/1949, and appears to have been initially signed only as a bypass to 3 (more info is in the 3 entry). In the 1953 renumbering, the bypass became the mainline of 3, and the old route was unnumbered. It was soon numbered 153 and called Old Route 3; only the part west of Paterson Plank Road was ever state maintained, and 153 may have been truncated there at some point. At some later point, the connection to 3 at the west end was severed. I'm not sure when NJDOT got rid of 153, though it might have been in 1988 with many other routes. It was out of the Straight Line Diagrams by 1980.

Not assigned: From an intersection point of Route 3 and 8th Street, east of the Hackensack River Bridge in Secaucus, via former Route 3 and Paterson Plank Road, to and including the overpass of present Route 3 in Secaucus. 1953 renumbering.

154

41 was originally planned to bypass the center of Haddonfield (more info is in the 41 entry). In the 1953 renumbering, NJDOT decided to do away with the plans for a bypass. The section of bypass that had already been built was set off as an unnumbered route, and was soon numbered 154. Some time in the 1990s, the circle at the north end of 154 was rebuilt as an intersection with jughandles from 70. The two through movements are 70 and 154-41. The county-maintained part of 41 immediately to the south carries the jughandle from 70 east. A connector road was built between 41/CR 573 and 154 south of the intersection, and 41 was routed along the connector. Thus 154 now ends multiplexed with 41.

Not assigned: Section of former Route 41 from Haddonfield-Berlin Road, Delaware Township, to the intersection of Route 70 (former Route 40), in Delaware Township. 1953 renumbering

155

155 was pre-GR
S41N, Cinnaminson Ave north of US 130. It was given back to Burlington County (CR 607) sometime after 1969.

156

156 is old
US 130 through Yardville, numbered just after the GR. It may have been formed so close to the GR (in 1952) that by the time it was given a number, it was already 156 (or the GR was anticipated and thus a number was intentionally withheld).

158

158 was
25AD pre-GR, probably numbered because of its proximity to 58. It was a bridge over the Passaic River between Newark and Harrison, converted from an old railroad trestle. See 25AD for history.

US 206 south of White Horse, formed in 1942 when 39 was slightly realigned to bypass Mission Rd. The pre-GR number is unknown. The dashed lines in the small map at left are the paths of what are now I-295 (north-south) and I-195 (east-west).

162

162 is a bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway near Cape May, formed in 1969. It is unsigned. Its history lies in
S4C, a route proposed south from 4 (now US 9) into Cape May, but only when the state rebuilt the bridge over the Waterway was any part of the route taken over by the state and given a number.

163

163 used to lead to a bridge over the Delaware River near the town of Delaware; it now dead-ends next to a still-existing railroad bridge. Until 12/1/1953,
US 46 used the bridge, and then it was rerouted to end in Columbia and the old bridge was dismantled. More history is available on the US 46 and 6 pages. 163 is unsigned. Sometime in the 1990's, the overpass of US 46 was removed, leaving a loop ramp from the former eastbound roadway that is now the only access to the west end of 163.

164

164 used Dowd Ave south of Newark Airport. It may have been the parallel
81 freeway, which opened 6/1982, that spelled its demise. Myles Putman says that Rand McNally maps after 1955 no longer show 164, and that the one from that year shows Dowd as Humboldt Ave., implying a deal wherein Elizabeth took over the road after construction.

165

165 is a short section of pre-GR
29 in Lambertville. It is unsigned, except as TO NORTH 29/179 and TO SOUTH 29. The history of 165 is on the 29 page. Officially, until recently, both directions of 29 ran along S Main St. But S Main St became one-way southbound for two blocks, which is why 165 northbound was signed TO NORTH 29. Recently, 29 was taken off of S Main St entirely and, after a one-block multiplex with 179, put onto 165. Thus 165 is completely multiplexed with 29.

166

166 is old
US 9 in Toms River. For a while it was also Alt. US 9. US 9 was probably moved onto the Garden State Parkway (444 around Toms River in 1954, when 166 would have been born. History of the road is in the 4 entry.

167

167 is old
US 9 at the Mullica River (bypassed 8/28/1954 by the Garden State Parkway). Several bridges are down and so there are abandoned sections in the middle; in addition, part of the Port Republic section has been closed since 1987. 167 is unsigned. The abandoned sections are no longer part of 167 [Jonathan Sachs noted this in the SLDs], and the northern part of 167 was briefly left out of the Straight Line Diagrams as well. There is 1.99 miles betweeen the two sections, reflected in milepost numbering.

169

169 was built to fill the gap of the never-completed
1, later 440, in Bayonne. 169 was initially built as shown in the map at left, with the first section opening in 1959. Then it was connected in the north to 440, which was built one interchange further south than in the map at right for that purpose (it would never make it any closer to the Bayonne Bridge than that). 440 used half of a trumpet at that point to connect to the east-west section of 169, paralleling I-78 immediately to the north. Later on, 169 was finished south to the Bayonne Bridge, and still later, 440 was realigned to remove the trumpet, replacing it with an S curve. Further history of the road is in the 1 entry. In 2001, 169 was renumbered to part of 440, with signs changed starting on 5/8/2001 [Jonathan Sachs].

ROUTE NO. . Beginning at Garfield avenue in Jersey City, Hudson county and connecting with a service road constructed by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority; and from thence proceeding eastwardly to Point Breeze; thence southerly approximately paralleling Avenue E over new location to a point opposite East 30th street in the city of Bayonne, Hudson county at location known as Constable Hook. L.1957, c. 88, p. 171, s. 1.

ROUTE NO. ----. Beginning at a point in existing Route 169 at Garfield street in Jersey City and extending thence in a general westerly direction between the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New Jersey Turnpike to a point in Route 440 Freeway approximately 1,500 feet south of the New Jersey Turnpike. Added by L.1967, c. 163, s. 1, eff. July 25, 1967.

ROUTE NO. ----. Beginning at the Bayonne bridge approach in the city of Bayonne, Hudson county and proceeding northeasterly and northerly to the vicinity of the New Jersey Turnpike, Newark Bay extension (I-78) in Jersey City, Hudson county and, thence, west-northwesterly, to the vicinity of New Jersey Route 440 in Jersey City, Hudson county. L.1976, c. 52, s. 1, eff. July 22, 1976.

170

In 1957,
US 206 was built around Columbus; the old route became 170. At some point after 1960, it was given to Burlington County and numbered CR 690. It was in the Straight Line Diagrams until 1985, so it may have been part of the 1988 decommissioning. History of the road is in the 39 entry.
