CR 527/577 Multiplex
Until the late 2010s, CR 527 north occupied Main St. for one block between Millburn Ave. and Essex St. in Millburn at the same time as CR 577 south occupied that block. Millburn then instituted left turn restrictions onto and off of Main St. that has resulted in a de facto circle multiplex of both directions of both roadways. The Straight Line Diagrams still consider 527 and 577 to turn at Main St.
