Is NJDOT seriously resorting to chip sealing its roadways as pavement "preservation"? They have been overlaying US-22 in Union and the dust and gravel have been making quite a mess. We'll see how long it lasts.


Mr. Matté

Yes they have. Route 68 was done many years ago like that, but at least their process on that road was done better than the chipping done ("wats dat?") in some of the northwestern counties and townships.

I saw a 1955 aerial photo ( a user posted an article with photograph) of the Lincoln Tunnel Helix in Weehawkin from the south. It showed the south tube under construction ( as that tube officially opened in 1957) and the plaza collecting fares both ways with the right side Willow Avenue WB ramp next to the plaza.


What I found interesting was that the center ramp to and from Hoboken wasn't even there. The only access to the Tunnel from Weehawkin and Hoboken was from the right side merge to  Hoboken from the tunnel was exclusively from the Willow Avenue underpass-ramp on the right.

Of course that makes sense now considering that the center tube has no access to the Willow Avenue exit on the right, so an additional ramp had to be built so that move could take place.
Every day is a winding road, you just got to get used to it.

Well this is a surprise



Intersection of CR-630 and CR-657 in Middlesex County is apparently a state asset. What made this intersection so special the state is responsible for it?

Not 100% sure but the Menlo Park NJ Veterans Memorial Home is on Oakwood and that's a state run facility so it might be one of those things where that road either is or was under state jurisdiction instead of local.

Per this 1954 map, yes Parsonage and Oakwood were previously under state control as evidenced by the blue line from US 1. However going as early as I can in GSV, the signal there looks like a county installation since Parsonage was explicitly signed as CR 630, a MidCo-only designation until the most recent state SLD update.

Other isolated state assets (like some of the traffic lights off the GSP on the former NJDOT section, orphaned railroad bridges, or that other blue line by Jamesburg to juvie hall) don't seem to register on the state pothole website though.

By the way, the NJ 15 bridge apparently reopened Sunday afternoon. Temporary bridge for now.
