Well that intersection is in Essex County, which I was surprised went with yellow heads as they were one of the last counties to switch from green.  That is why Short Hills Mall has some greens left.

roadman65:
Has anyone ever contacted NJDOT about the missing trailblazers in both Asbury Park and Belmar along Route 71?

Here is SB Main at Eighth where Route 71 SB turns right onto Eighth to head west.

No shields informing SB motorists of the right turn at all.

Now travel west on Eighth and no mention Route 71 SB turns left here either onto Route 35.


Now letís go north on Route 71.

EB Eighth in Belmar at Main where no shields direct traffic to the left as Route 71 turns left from Eighth.

This is NB on Main in Asbury Park. No shields to inform northbound motorists the route turns east on Deal Lake.

Then once again no signage to point out Route 71 NB turns left at the light on to Norwood Avenue.

This is got to be the worst state maintained route to follow outside of DC.

I think the street blades helped me out quite a bit on NJ 71.

When I toured 71 back in 2018, I tried to grab photos of at least 1 reassurance in each direction in every municipality, but several towns completely lacked them. The new mile markers help and as already mentioned, so do the traffic light blades.

71 is a relatively rare relic of olden times in NJ, where the road mostly exists on existing streets instead of being realigned to something more modern constructed by the state.

NJRoadfan:
If I recall, NJ-71 itself is an older alignment of what is now NJ-35 in the area.
