Alps:
(We've actually not yet had a general catch-all for NJ.)

Got this question online, does anyone have an idea?

I looked back to 1953 on Historic Aerials, overpass was there with houses on both sides, didn't seem like a bridge to nowhere. I looked at 1931, Maple Lake Rd. (Kinnelon) was still there, well before 23. Why would it have been in Ripley's?

It would probably have been in a newspaper one, they might have been milking it as a "thousands spent on a bridge...for cows!" type thing.


Zeffy:
While driving on NJ 31 South heading towards Trenton, there was a new blue sign installed recently (around the intersection with CR 518, I believe, and the bridge is still closed) naming NJ 31 the "Tri-County Purple Heart Memorial Highway" (or something close to that).

What's the third county? I know NJ 31 lies in Hunterdon and Mercer Counties, but I can't figure out the third one. At first I thought Somerset (where I live), but I know NJ 31 doesn't show up until you are in Hunterdon. Does anyone know anything about the sign?

Ah, that was the third one. I forgot about it running all the way to US 46 near Washington Township.
