New Jersey Roads - NJ 12

NJ 12


As seen from PA 32, the Uhlerstown-Frenchtown Bridge. It's a secondary Pennsylvania route because it's under a mile long, but becomes NJ 12 midspan.


Driving west from New Jersey across the span. Click here for an eastbound video.

Joint detail.




Looking north and south at the Delaware River.


WB at NJ 29. Yes, this is actually the end of 29, not TO it, except NJ 29 is town-maintained within the borders of Frenchtown - there is an END 29 assembly entering the town. Signage therefore reflects maintenance, not legislation. Also note the old pole, which would have held a little white sign once upon a time.


The only old NJ 12 shield left, EB at the beginning of CR 513.


The WB sign (second photo) is the original, but while the replica doesn't do a very good job of replicating, in its own right it has become an anomaly - and is now fairly old as well.


The stamps in the northern parapets of the Wickechoeke Creek bridge; NJ 12 is one of the rare routes that has kept its number from the days of bridge stampings.


The end of NJ 12 at the Flemington Circle, where NJ 31 and US 202 come together from the north and northeast. NJ 12 just went through a small rotary and came out four-lane divided, and not 500 feet later is confronted with a huge circle that will hopefully get the Somerville treatment and have a US 202 flyover. NJ 31 is also slated for a western Flemington bypass to take some traffic away.


If you went into the Flemington Circle and came back out on NJ 12 WB, these are the large shields you would encounter, in order. Note the two signs with old light fixtures above them - they date the initial installation of the assemblies somewhere around 30-40 years or even more, possibly with white instead of green signs beneath.
