NJ State Highways: CR 561-585

561 is the highest number of the original 5xx system, whose north-south routes run on the odd numbers from
501 in the northeast corner of the state, to 543 in the southwest, and then counterclockwise around a center approximately in Camden. In the borough of Gibbsboro, there is a newer alignment of 561 that passes over the former surface streets that made it up, but those surface streets are still officially parts of 561 (561A, 561B, 561D), excluding the two quick former multiplexes with CR 686 and CR 699. In the 2000s, 561D was cut off from 561 and dead-ended. There is also a railroad bridge on the 73/561 multiplex that replaces a grade crossing, and the road leading to that grade crossing (and to 536) is also officially part of 561. For some reason, that is 561C, instead of keeping A/B/C together.

Spur 561

Officially, the whole route of Spur 561 became
73 in the late 1990s; until then, it extended 73 from the Atlantic City Expressway (446) south to US 322. Spur 561 began where 561 joins 73 and multiplexed until 73 quit. Strangely, Spur 561 still might exist, much as 573 exists: entirely multiplexed with a state route and not in the SLDs. Only because I'm not sure if it's dead do I include the route log below.

573 was multiplexed (and still is signed) with the county maintained section of
41, formerly TEMPORARY 41 (go there for more history). The north end was at 70 and 154, which has since been reconfigured so that 41 meets 154 to the south. Since 573 is not in the SLDs anymore, the north end is somewhat ambiguous (if the route still exists at all, which is doubtful, but the route is still signed). 573 may end at the ramp from 70 east (where 41 turns right to get to and onto the state-maintained alignment) or continue north to the dead-end of Kings Hwy just before reaching 70.

575 used to cross Black Horse Pike and continue on English Creek Road to meet Pomona Road just south of
US 30. This changed when the Atlantic City Expressway was constructed, severing English Creek Avenue and leading to 575 being rerouted west along US 40/322 to Wrangleboro Road. Relocation of Atlantic City’s airport from Bader Field and expansion of what is now AC International further severed English Creek Avenue/Road into three traversable sections (Atlantic CR 603, 604, and 605), with one inaccessible section inside the airport fence.

Millburn tried signing 577W and 577E in its town center, along with W and E versions of
527, on its one-way pair of Millburn Ave and Essex St. The shields have been replaced because these routes don't exist, but a couple of signal overhead signs remained for years after. 577 between 509 and 124 was turned into Spur 509 for no good reason, and 577 was thus removed from its short multiplex with 124. As of 2004, 577 was signed back over its old route again to end at 509, made official in the Straight Line Diagrams after 2006.

Spur 577

Spur 577 was the continuation of Prospect Ave southward from Mt Pleasant Ave (where
10 ends at 577, which turns from Prospect as described in its entry above). It ended where Prospect Ave ends, at 508. It was renumbered to Essex County 677, although recent signage erected by Essex County has resurrected Spur 577. Since the dead Essex County Spur 527 has also come back to life, I attribute it to Essex County's misinformation for now.

583 is multiplexed with southbound
US 206 and signed (but unofficial) southbound Bus. US 1 south of the Brunswick Circle; northbound "Bus. US 1"/US 206 is a couple of blocks to the east. 583 once continued on Calhoun St and may have ended at the bridge into PA or else at 29, while US 206 and Alt. US 1 were both on Brunswick Ave. Now, US 206 southbound comes on at Lawrenceville Rd, and what is signed as Bus. US 1 comes in a block later. Where Calhoun St comes out of Princeton Ave is now numbered Mercer CR 653, so 583 ends silently multiplexed.

585 once extended a lot farther south than it does now. From SPUI, here is a list of the routes it used (all 6xx routes are in Cape May County), some of which are part of Ocean Drive, a connected series of seaside county routes:
52, 9th St in Ocean City, CR 656 (Ocean Dr), CR 623, US 9, CR 631, CR 610, 47, CR 657, US 9, 147 (the end of which is part of Ocean Dr), and CR 621 (Ocean Dr). It ended at 109, where Ocean Dr continued north toward its ultimate end at the Lewes Ferry. As you can see, this route was very unnecessarily convoluted, multiplexing with US 9 twice while wandering over to the Delaware Bay in between. Had 585 just followed Ocean Dr, it might have survived all the way to Cape May.

Spur 585

Back when
585 went all the way to Cape May, Spur 585 was near its parent. It is now Cape May CR 618, which is the westward extension of 147 to 47; if you sneak a peek above, 585 turned from US 9 to 147 where Spur 585 would have jutted out west. Once 585 was retracted to Somers Point, the orphaned Spur route was euthanized.
