New Jersey Roads - Burlington/Camden/Ocean CR 616/old Spur CR 528

Burlington/Camden/Ocean ,
former Spur CR 528

Above: West from CR 541.

The long CR 616 comes to an end at CR 543 as Cove Rd. in Pennsauken. So much for saving the best for last.

The first EB sign is at Haddonfield Rd. The second is either at an animal hospital or Olive Garden, as there are no streets there. I could believe either of them occasionally need a truck shipment.

This NJDOT-style sign warns of the approaching NJ 38 intersection. CR 616/Church Rd. and Cooper Landing Rd./Coles Ave. share the circle while NJ 38 cuts through it.

Into Burlington County, hopefully this is clear enough to tell you how to stay on Church Rd. EB on its short NJ 73 concurrency. It's not the most typical way.

The worst part of Church Rd. intersecting Church St. is that it's not even Church St. to the right in Evesboro, it's North Maple Ave. This is all Mt. Laurel's fault.

Past CR 541, EB across North Branch Rancocas Creek into Pemberton.

Courtesy Barry Caselli, you would see this attempted signage leaving the Wawa at CR 668 north of Pemberton.

Odd and old EB signs around the fort. The old signal sign is at Juliustown Rd., CR 669. You can't turn right because of Fort Dix and the signal no longer functions, so the rusted out red indication is appropriate.

CR 545 has been closed through Fort Dix for several years. One can either go around the west side on CR 670 (also part of old Spur CR 528) and CR 663, coming back to CR 616, or one can head east and through the fort, as you'll see in the next photo. CR 616 itself is also closed south of the CR 545 intersection.

Eastbound at the Fort Dix cut-through, the signs are pretty new, and they must be since Spur CR 528 hasn't been gone that long, and yet the shields look like 1960's freeway-signage vintage. That's because of the excessive pale yellow around the edges. Why is JCT larger than EAST?

WB at Meany Road, just east of CR 667, and then looking at the signblade itself. This is the only hint of Spur CR 528 on Burlington CR 616. More follows in Ocean County...

See, cross the border, lose all sense of what number road you're on. Both are EB approaching the end of CR 616 at CR 528. The EAST should be above the SPUR, or else there should be a JCT instead of the EAST and an END on top of the SPUR. Now, of course, put that into past tense.
