In the 1937 renumbering, 11 was assigned to three roads in the corridor from Long Branch to Red Bank. The main one ran along Oceanport Ave and Branch Ave from Broadway in Eatontown to the Red Bank city line. Pinckney Rd went west from Branch Ave as another part of 11, ending at Broad St. Broad St ran both ways from Pinckney Rd to NJ 35 and Front St (10) as the final section. The Pinckney Rd section and Broad St south of Pinckney Rd became part of 520 in the 1953 renumbering. Additionally, Branch Ave from Pinckney Rd south to Rumson Rd (old 13B) became part of 520, but this stayed as 11 as well.
A realignment of 11 at Oceanport was taken over on 12/5/1978, with the former alignment being given to Oceanport on 5/17/1977. However, a locally maintained section of Port Au Peck Ave serves as part of the new alignment, so 11 is now cut into two parts there. Recently, Broad St north of Harding Rd (34) was given back to Red Bank. In exchange, the county took over Branch Ave from the Red Bank line north to 34.

12 was defined in the 1937 renumbering as two sections of road. The first was an old section of state road (paralleling NJ 35) through Middletown. Part of this road has been abandoned; the road crossed NJ 35 onto Harmony Rd, bore left on Old Country Rd, crossed NJ 35 again onto Cherry Tree Ln, and then bore right back to NJ 35. The other section of 12 had been 52; it became 12A by 1939. 12 was soon abandoned by the county. Its number was then unused until part of Nut Swamp Rd was taken over in 1943 and numbered 12 (since it was near 12A). This was gradually extended.

12A was designated as 12 in 1937; it became 12A by 1939. It originally only went from NJ 35 to McClees Creek, but was eventually extended on both ends.

In 1937, a bunch of roads were numbered 13. The only one that was still 13 in 1939 was Shrewsbury Ave, an alternate to NJ 35; this had been 72. Former 43 from Tinton Falls to Little Silver became another piece of 13; this became 13A by 1939. The other section of 13, which became 13B by 1939, used Rumson Rd east from Branch Ave (11) to the Little Silver/Rumson line, along former 47.

The Rumson Rd section of 13 from 1937 became 13B by 1939. On 2/23/1939, the county took over Rumson Rd east to 34 (10 at the time). Soon after, a spur was added going southwest to Little Silver railroad station, with a short spur of its own to cut a corner. The Rumson Rd section became 520 in the 1953 renumbering, but the spur is stil 13B.

14 was assigned in 1937 to several routes in Long Branch. One section, formerly 37, went along Cedar Ave from NJ 71 east to Westwood Ave. A second continued up Westwood Ave to the end; this had probably been 38. 39, Brighton Ave from Norwood Ave east to the ocean, also became 14, as did 40, Norwood Ave from Cedar Ave north to Broadway. In the 1953 renumbering, the numbers 25 and 37 were freed up. The Norwood Ave and Cedar Ave sections became 25, and Brighton Ave became 37, leaving only Westwood Ave as 14. 14 was recently given back to Long Branch, and has been resurrected on West Park Avenue (once thought to be 58).

In the 1937 renumbering, 36, along Asbury Ave, became 16. At that time, the road was county-maintained from Five Points Rd to the Asbury Park boundary. When Naval Weapons Station Earle opened, 16 was abandoned through it, and it was later abandoned west of it. It still goes right up to the weapons station on the east side.

17 was assigned in 1937 to a bunch of roads in the Neptune area. At the time, the following roads were part of 17, some of which got suffixes by 1939:

10th Ave in Belmar was added in 1937, and became another 17C by 1939. In 1938, Evergreen Ave in Bradley Beach was added as another 17. West Sylvania Ave was added in 1939, and East End Ave was added at some point as a spur from West Sylvania Ave. The numbers 2, 5, and 40 were freed up in the 1953 renumbering, and were used to help the confusion with 17. The 6th Ave route became 2, the Steiner Ave route became 5, and the Sunset Ave route (17A) became 40. It appears it was then that Evergreen Ave became 17A. Sylvania Ave in Avon was added in 1964, and 17 hasn't changed since then, though all the suffixed spurs of it have disappeared.

17A was numbered by 1939 along Sunset Ave west of Asbury Park, which had been 17 in 1937. This was never connected to any section of 17, which is probably why it became 40 in the 1953 renumbering. It appears that, at the same time, the Evergreen Ave section of 17 became 17A. This was removed in 1968.

9th Ave and 10th Ave in Belmar, originally 17, became 17C by 1939. At some point, 10th Ave was renumbered to 17D, but it was changed back in the 1953 renumbering. 9th and 10th Aves may have been a one-way pair; apparently most streets in Belmar are one-way during the summer and two-way at other times. The roads were given back to Belmar in 1965.

Pre-1937 32 went from Farmingdale to Belmar. A bit of this near Belmar became NJ 35 in 1935, and the rest became 18 in the 1937 renumbering. Megill Rd was added at some unknown time to cut the corner to NJ 34. In 1966, 18 was extended east to the ocean, and eventually also north and south along the ocean, now running from Spring Lake to Bradley Beach.
