New Jersey Roads - Middlesex County

Middlesex County

The New Brunswick mini-meet, 9/14/08

This type of LGS is only found in Middlesex County, where a few roads in the Milltown/North Brunswick area are signed as county-maintained without "really" having route numbers - i.e. that isn't CR 3R9, just road #3R9 (originally 3-R-9) under the county maintenance system. In fact, it's CR 606, if you'd like to be confused a bit more. Thanks to Lou Corsaro for pointing me to this sign.

Practically in Lou's backyard, but I get the credit, on 3rd Ave. or 4th Ave. in North Brunswick, just off of NJ 171.

Elm Pl. in Milltown comes to an abrupt end at this embossed sign, and is forced right onto School St. There's no reason to build much farther when up ahead is a steep downhill followed by a river (the Lawrence Brook).

CR 603 NB at and then past... itself... actually, CR 603 turns left here, following Hamilton Blvd., but the sign does not at all make clear that Durham Ave. has nothing to do with 603.

CR 616 EB (New Brunswick Ave.) just past US 9 in The Tangle.

The southern end of CR 697 doesn't sound like anything special. Now, what if I told you that this is the former junction of US 130 and CR 522? Suddenly special, right? Well, CR 697 hasn't been US 130 in many years, but Ridge Road was CR 522 a lot more recently than that, which may be why there's a blank panel on the signal overhead. Or it might have been fabricated after CR 522 moved, but someone didn't get the memo and had to remove or cover the shield.

Oh, and 1:17 AM on alternate Saturdays. Green St. WB at Elizabeth Ave. in Woodbridge.

This had been the new Brunswick, but now there's a new New Brunswick, so the other one wasn't the old Brunswick, just the old New Brunswick. Or it's the old road to New Brunswick. But there's no New New Brunswick Road, or even a regular New Brunswick Road. This should definitely have been rethought.

Faster! Faster! Chrome St., North Brunswick.

Idden Drive Ay? Oh, I get it. On Plainsboro Rd. EB in the township of the same name, courtesy Lou Corsaro.

These ducks run amok along Hartland Commons in North Brunswick. They look so happy!

The last one of these New Brunswick speed limit signs I know of, since the one on Livingston Ave. in New Brunswick disappeared. This is on Remsen Ave., technically just south of the border in North Brunswick.

Button copy on Culver Road in Dayton. Yes, this page is getting better and it's still not there.

On every roadgeek's wishlist, yellow signs from before red signs were used, courtesy Lou Corsaro. Townsend St./E. Foch Ave. in Milltown, and the second one is just the other direction, same place.
