NJ 62
« on: March 14, 2009, 07:39:27 PM »

NJ 62 is about to be signed from mainline US 46.  Signs are sitting on the ground awaiting finishing the gantry poles.  Each direction will have at least one shield (EB I know will have two) to go along with the one on the EB offramp at the 62 signal.  Will be interesting to see what else pops up on 62 in the coming years.

NJ 62 is Union Blvd. between US 46 and I-80, inclusive of the approaches on either side of the interchanges.  Used to run up to Paterson and at one point was US 46 before the NJ 6 bypass (present-day 46 east to NJ 20) was built.

62 is now signed in both directions of 46 (signs are up) as well as on overheads at signals.  Other hidden routes:
13 (one mention in text - see my site)
59 (one mention on new overhead signs - see my site)
64 (no mentions - see my site)
81 (now with begin/end shields and at least one signal overhead - see my site)
162 (no mentions - see my site)
163 (no mentions, dead end - see my site)
165 (no mentions - see my site)
167 (no mentions, 2 dead ends - see my site)

So that's 9 total.

I guess this will merit an addition to the ends page eventually (when it goes back online). Did they ever milepost the route?

Define milepost.  Are any posted?  No.  Are they maintained internally?  Yes.

I did notice that NJ-62 does appear on the official NJ State map now.

The NJDOT Straight Line Diagram now recognizes the route.  0.47 miles long, between U.S. 46 and the intersection with the I-80 WB off-ramp.
