US 9 Ends

Southern End

9 begins at the Cape May Ferry Terminal in Lower Twp. One might consider the ferry crossing of the state line to be the unofficial end.

9 south entering the queuing area and up to the terminal building.

Looking north from the Cape May-Lewes Ferry at the Cape May terminal at the approximate state border in the center of Delaware Bay.

Historic Southern End

Until US 9 was extended along Sandman Blvd. to the ferry in 1971, it ended in downtown Cape May at the south end of what is now 109.
Original Southern End

9 ended at US 30 at what is now the south end of NJ 157 in Absecon until it was extended in the 1930s.
Original Northern End

9 originally ended at the south end of what is now NJ 93, which was original US 9W.

1/9 south at the south end of 93, historically 1 south/US 9E south at the south end of 9W. 9W and 9E came together to form 9.
Original Extended Northern End

9 was extended along NJ 5 and ended at what is now NJ 67 in Fort Lee from 1929-1930, where it split into US 9W and US 9E.

5 east, historic 9 north, at the wye intersection at the historic south ends of 9W (left, modern NJ 67) and 9E (right).

67 south now bears left on the wye toward 5 east (Central Blvd.), but historically, 9W south followed this leg to the right toward 9 south (now 5 west). 9E south ended at the merge ahead.
Historic Northern End

In 1930, US 9E was eliminated and US 9 was moved to the Outerbridge Crossing, entering New York in Perth Amboy until 1934.
