New Jersey Roads - Second Renumbering

The Second Great Renumbering


The rules of the game:
1) Other states maintain their signage as current. That means that NY 303 and NY 304 continue to end at the border.
2) Cross-border Interstate and US routes will not be changed, with the exception of US 206 (since it barely reaches PA). I-676 does not count as the PA I-676 ends at I-95.
3) No new miles of road may be built. Freeways may not be upgraded from existing surface roads (e.g. changing US 130 to I-395), but surface roads may be upgraded from town/county maintenance to state maintenance and standards or from town to county maintenance/standards.
4) Any non-Interstate road may be downgraded - including from signed to unsigned. When a county road is "downgraded", it is assumed to go from a 5xx to a 6xx (i.e. a minor county road instead of a state secondary).
5) For my purposes, odds go N-S, evens go E-W, and numbers increase from the NE corner. 5's and 0's are the longest (only applies to two-digit routes). Branches of state routes are 1xx and 2xx, those of county routes are 4xx. The exception is NJ 395, which is so numbered because 195 and 295 are taken by Interstates; the existence of US 322 validates it.
6) Any route or section of route not mentioned in the list is downgraded.

Well, that's about it. You'll notice that I'm changing border continuity - NY 17 no longer touches NJ 17, same for NY 94 and 284 and PA 413, and NJ 6 has no signed counterpart in NY. Also, some downgraded roads, such as the NJ 21 viaduct to 1-9/22, will remain under state maintenance, but would be signed to the connecting routes, i.e. "TO 5" "TO 1-9/22".


Left: My original proposal for a new NJ state route shield, before I realized how awkward those dimensions would be. Right: After consideration, merging in the state colors while keeping the ubiquitous circle is more realistic and could look very nice as cutouts.
