How are highways with concurrent routes, such as US 1/9 being signed with new mileposts? I've noticed on Google Maps only US 1 mileage. Same deal with US 130/NJ 33, US 322/40, etc.

NJ has always traditionally gone with whatever the "primary route" is for its mileposting. So, for example, 1-9 uses 1's mileage after they merge in Woodbridge and the mileposts just show a 1 shield. However, I came home from the City on the Skyway tonight for the first time in a while, and noticed that on the section in Newark between 78 and the Skyway, the mileposts are actually signed with the same 1-9 shields that are used on signs from Linden northward (for whatever reason, in Middlesex County, they sign 1-9 with two separate shields, but it changes once you get into Union County).

202-206 in Bridgewater and Bedminster still only shows 202's shield on the mileposts. Same for 202-31 south of the Flemington Circle.

Not always. NJ 23 and US 202 shared mileposts back in the day, if not now. There was a little shield to tell you which route's milepost it was.

The ACX welcome center is departing for the boards.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — There is a sudden change of venue for an information hub housed inside a visual staple on the Atlantic City Expressway.

For years, Joseph Polillo says he ran a postcard stand at the Atlantic City Visitor Welcome Center.

...

Polillo says he was pretty surprised when he heard just a few days ago the visitor's center, right on the expressway, was closing down.

"I just happened to come across it on a Facebook page. They didn't even call me or tell me or anything or ask me to come and get my stuff out there, we're closing. Nah," he said.

...

He says the center's location could have been a lot better than the expressway.

"Drivers going 70 miles an hour are not going to stop for something they're going to go see anyway," he said.

The closure of the rest stop even came as a surprise to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who stopped by center Monday morning.

A sign on the door of the center says it's been relocated to Boardwalk Hall.

Many did stop there...back before the internet was a thing.  Today, most people going have already done their research.

I think there's a three-level stack somewhat near NJ Turnpike Exit 11 and MM 90?

Thank you! I forget about NJ's county routes sometimes!

You might as well add the coming attraction:  I-76/CR 659 Browning Road/I-295.

That's gonna be a 4 stack, or very close to it.  The ramp from 295 South to 42 South will be under Rt. 42 very close to the vicinity of the Browning Road overpass.

Does anyone know what NJ regulations are on a municipality setting local speed limits at 15mph or 20mph?

Can a municipality pass an ordinance setting a speed limit along a road they maintain to 15mph or 20mph? is there any state level prohibition from doing so?

I cant find anything explicitly allowing it or explicitly barring it in Title 39.

4-98 specifically allows it. Without a signed limit, the speed limit can be 25, 35, 50 or 65.

I think the state has a policy of no limits under 25 mph on regular roadways. I think I've seen lower in some developments with a lot of parking and shopping centers though

I'm not sure if I've seen under 25 on a publicly maintained road, though.

Is this sign blade new?  I'd swear it wasn't there in 2017.  NJ 64 remains un-mileposted (at least, not in the new style).

Yes NJDOT loves to sign blades with directions even if a turn prohibition is in place like in Union where from Stuyvesant Avenue NB has a no left turn sign right next to a NJ 82 W Blade sign telling you to turn left.
