Wow, US 1 in New Jersey is interesting!

From this intersection on US 1-9 in Linden all the way to I-95 outside Trenton, I saw no place where one could legally turn left from US 1. The relatively few opportunities for indirect left turns are offered via at-grade jughandle ramps, often augmented by at-grade loop ramps, or at interchanges, of which there are quite a few. I would think that the jughandle ramps would be unsafe and inefficient since they're apparently not signalized and intersect the crossroads very close to the intersection with US 1, but there are quite a few of relatively recent construction, so apparently the concept is still considered viable.

Check out this impressive interchange at US 1 and US 130! And this third-world style trumpet with U-turn loop ramp. It's there because...

Speaking of the third world... many poor countries use augmented arterials such as this because they can't afford to build motorways. As with US 1, it's not unusual for their medians to be unbroken for very long stretches despite the presence of dense development on both sides of the road. This surely imposes considerable hardship on pedestrians and transit riders. In poor countries, pedestrian bridges are provided at decent intervals, but the one in Corey's photo is the only one I saw over US 1.

There are quite a few projects going on, as well as recent-looking improvements. US 1 in New Jersey is still a work in progress and clearly has been for a very long time.

I think US 1 was upgraded to near freeway status to compensate for the never-built Somerset Freeway (I-95) from Trenton to Somerset.

US 1/9 is a unique highway very busy runs Parallel to the North East Corridor in the NE and much of NJ, all of its Jughandles and loop ramps have signals , trust me ive been on US 1/9 many times , in recent years they've been replacing busy intersections with Interchanges. As For Jughandles as a whole , its most a Jersey Thing works well for us , they have some PA and NY , and Mass they always have a Signal. The US 1 / US 130 Interchange isn't third world its genius , they built in a U-turn ramp so they wouldn't have to build a Jughandle further down. Broken Medians , i don't think so its a Solid Concrete and Steel Barrier form Philly to NYC. As for Transit ,since it runs next to the NEC most Buses feed into the NEC and PPL use that about 70,000 ppl daily use NJT NEC line form Trenton to Hoboken or NY Penn. US 1 has alot of PED crossing mostly tunnels and a few bridges, yes we do have alot going on here mainly Bridges and Tunnels and Rail Ext.

New section of non-interstate freeway open

The US 41 bypass freeway around Peshtigo, WI opened on Thursday, 2009-11-19.

This completes the four-lane freeway and expressway upgrades to US 41 from just south of Oconto, WI to just north of Peshtigo, WI, completing the high-speed US 41 highway from metro Milwaukee to the south city limits of Marinette, WI, just short of the Michigan state line. This project included freeway bypasses of Oconto and Peshtigo and non-freeway expressway upgrades to the existing two-lane US 41 away from the bypasses.

is it really amazing in US?

(major dualcarriege way thru the villages, towns with no sound, crash barriers etc.)

I have never seen such a thing in Western Europe, probably due to safety measures

Its a state Hwy , like many here there are stores along , they bring $$$ to the local economy and towns , there are sound walls they are hidden behind a natural sound barrier of Thick Trees and small hills. This is mainly an Northeast thing.

Well, conceptually it's not that different from Texas-style frontage roads. It's just that there's no physical barrier between the mainline and the abutting properties. What amazes me is that properties fronting the road are attractive for commercial (or any) uses. Apparently visibility makes up for the lack of accessability.

Even more amazing to me is that one state can be so committed to a design concept that is so rarely used elsewhere.

Well, gee. On the satellite view I didn't find a single jughandle ramp with the stop bars indicative of signal control, and on the many I checked out in Google Streetview, stop and yield signs are clearly visible (one had a yield sign with shark's teeth and no stop sign!), and there aren't signals. I'm talking about the ramp terminals, not the intersections with US 1.

US 1 in the northeastern Boston suburbs is the same way. These roads evolved from little carriage roads into what they are now and are called 'Jersey Freeways'.

BTW, there is a full cloverleaf interchange in the Toms River, NJ area - without an overcrossing in the middle. It has four 'teacup' lefts, one in each quadrant, with outside ramps for the right turns and a signalized intersection where the bridges would be.

The Palisades Interstate Parkway is also interesting, it's one of the few (if not the only) Parkway in New Jersey that has a Robert Moses design. The GSP is different, much wider and newer.

Tom: Are roads are fine , they work great thats all that matters , here in NJ , we have alot Mass Transit, so the Roads aren't that congested as other states and cities , as for the Jughandle most have stoplights , except in Rural areas were its a stop sign or yield. Trust me , ive been all over NJ , i would know. Most of US 1 is becoming more Motorway like at least in the Northern Part , and the Central / Southern Part its a Dual Carriage Way , with Maybe Traffic Lights every 3 to 5 miles and they are short lights : 30 sec max , there are interchanges in the Central Southern part. Several Cooperate Companies have Interchanges along US 1 and US 130 has an interchange as well as I-295. Also there are Bypass Segments , like in Trenton , Newark , Jersey City.

Actually Chris the PIP is NJ-NY George Washington Bridge to Bear Mountain Bridge

I think I may have found an error in a traffic count report from the New Jersey DOT for the ACE (Atlantic City Expressway). It's administratively numbered route 446, but the traffic volumes for those locations are in the 150,000 - 200,000 range, which is absolutely impossible because the ACE has only 4 lanes at those sections. For instance, near exit 38, Williamstown, the given volume is 210,000 while that part of the ACE has only 2x2 lanes. That volume on those lanes is physically impossible, normally such volumes require 10 lanes.

http://www.state.nj.us/transportatio...y/traffic.shtm

Download the TXT file and adjust the font size and font style as told on that website and search for NJ 446 just over halfway in the list.

I think its more like 40-50,000. When the RiverLine LRT is extended to Glassboro , you can expect another drop in Car Usage. Since more & more New Jerseyites are moving to Rail vs. Bus or Car.

Great posts Nexis, i've seen each one of them and i really liked them.

i have a question for you:

What's the speed limit in state highways?

I also really like natural sound barriers, they look really good, don't get graffitti or anything like that, and are effective... Great if you have plenty of space for highways.

Depends on where the road is and what kind. The state highway title are more a jurisdictional designation than a level of service. Perhaps it is different in Jersey. But you are right, I bet Nexis knows what the limit is on that particular road.
