New Jersey Roads - CR 542

CR 542

This is the beginning of CR 542 WB in Burlington County. It is not Burlington CR 653, nor is it in Atlantic County (this error also occurs on US 9). The END sign on the other side of the road gets it right. I can see where maybe there was supposed to be a TO over the 653 shield (it's a little over a mile down the road), but what I don't understand is how Burlington Co. managed to contract out not just one but two Atlantic County (542 hits that one in another 10 miles) signs, and never caught the error.

Speaking of Burlington CR 653, it's just across this drawbridge (heading EB) in Wading River. Dig the gate arm in its waning years.

And here's a photo in Atlantic County, EB at Columbia Rd. in Nesco.
