New Jersey is one of several states across the country that once had a completely different set of state highway numbers than those currently in use. New Jersey underwent a total renumbering of its state route system in 1927, which replaced the system instituted in 1916. One member of this new route system was Route 9, in Essex County. However, the use of the number “9” led to confusion, since another highway with that number, US 9, ran through nearby parts of New Jersey. Eventually the highway was dropped from the rolls, and is now signed as County Route 506.
Our replica New Jersey Route 9 sign is made to the exact state standard as used between 1927 and 1938. We’ve painstakingly recreated every aspect of this sign, using the same federal block fonts that were used on the original. Show your New Jersey pride with this little piece of forgotten Garden State history!
Our New Jersey Route 9 sign is printed in the USA on heavy 14-gauge steel. Its glossy, non-reflective coating can withstand the elements, rain or shine, for years to come. We offer this sign in four sizes, with mounting holes pre-drilled for your convenience:
- 12 in. diameter
- 16 in. diameter (the actual size of these signs as used in the field)
- 24 in. diameter
- 36 in. diameter
