NJ 5 Ends

Historic Western End

In 1927, 5 was defined to end in downtown Paterson, likely at Market and Main Streets. 5 was redefined in 1929 to its current western end, but was likely signed to Paterson into the 1930s until NJ 6/US 46 were built as a southern bypass. Some maps shown 6/46 on Market St. before the bypass was completed, so 5 may only have been signed in locations already bypassed by the new 6/46 east of Paterson.

This is the northeast corner of Main and Market Streets. 5 originally began to the right.
