New Jersey Roads - Route Log - Multiplexes - 37/524
NJ 37/CR 524 Multiplex
NJ 37 was never signed west of its current terminus, but a few portions of roadways were built under State contracts for 37 and were inventoried as such in the Straight Line Diagrams until about 1990.
Historic Western End (White Horse)
37 began multiplexed with 524 at the US 206/CR 533 White Horse Circle.
The first eastbound reassurance on 524/historic 37. Taken 7/2/2002 by Ray Martin.
524 west at 206 and the historic end of 37. 206 south is left, north is straight, and 533 north is to the right.
206 north at 524/historic 37 and 533. 5th and last photos were taken 6/23/02 by Chris Mason.
Just after exiting from 206 north; 533 is straight and 524/historic 37 is to the right. These signs are just off the right side of the second photo from Chris Mason. Taken 7/2/2002 by Ray Martin.
Inside the former White Horse Circle. The roadway on the left takes 533 south traffic (exiting right in this photo) to 524/historic 37 east. The roadway on the right (with yield markings) is the circle taking 206 north traffic to 533 north. The road bearing left leads back to 206.
206 south at 524/historic 37 and 533. There are probably signs pointing 206 to the right and I-195 east straight. Taken 7/2/2002 by Ray Martin.
533 south ends at 206 and 524/historic 37. Taken 7/2/2002 by Ray Martin.
Historic Eastern End (White Horse)
37 was multiplexed with 524 across Gropp Lake before the designation ended. The 195/524 interchange was intended to accommodate a cross-state highway.
195 east approaching Exit 2 for 524/historic 37. Continuing east from the ramp would immediately cross Gropp Lake.
195 west at Exit 2. There is no ramp to head back east on 524/historic 37, but "206 - S. Broad St." would be 524/historic 37 west.
Historic Section (Allentown)
37 began again while multiplexed with 524 around the Mercer/Monmouth County line. 37 crossed Doctors Creek with 524 and then ended again. To this day there is a State-built bridge over the creek. I do not have information as to whether this section of 37 encompassed anything more than the bridge and its immediate approaches.
