US 9W Ends

Original Southern End

Until 1929, US 9W ended along what is now NJ 93 at US 1/US 9 in Ridgefield.

1/9 south at the south end of 93, historically 1 south/US 9E south at the south end of 9W.
Historic Southern End

9W was moved in 1929 to what is now the southern end of NJ 67 at NJ 5.

5 east, historic 9 north, at the wye intersection at the historic south ends of 9W to the left and 9E to the 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 Extended Southern End

US 9 was moved to the Outerbridge Crossing from 1930-1934, and 9W was extended south along its former routing to meet it at what is now NJ 35/NJ 184 in Perth Amboy.

Grove St. east, now the frontage road for NJ 440 north but historically was the path of 9 north from the south end of 9W.
Interim Southern End

US 9 was moved to follow US 1 to the Holland Tunnel in 1934 until the George Washington Bridge opened, so US 9W was truncated to Tonnelle Ave. entering the Tonnele Circle.

1/9, briefly just 9W, south at Tonnele Circle.

1/9 north (Pulaski Skyway) at Tonnele Circle. 1/9 had not yet been moved to the Skyway in 1934 so this was NJ 25 Link.

The ramp from 25 Link north into Tonnele Circle. 1/9/NJ 25 entered from the left.

Original US 1/9/NJ 25 north (left bridge, later US 1/9 Truck and NJ 25T) and NJ 25 Link north (right bridge, Pulaski Skyway, became 25 mainline and now US 1/9) at the Tonnele Circle exit where 9W began. The left bridge is now gone.

The former alignment of 1/9 Truck north and original 1/9/25 mainline at Tonnele Circle, now maintained as a ramp from realigned 1/9 Truck.
