Encyclopedia > U.S. Highway 1 Truck (Jersey City)

TRUCK US 1-9 is the route that trucks must use between the eastern edge of Newark, New Jersey and Tonnelle Circle in Jersey City, New Jersey, due to trucks being banned from the Pulaski Skyway (starting in early 1934), which carries the main routes of US 1 and US 9. It also serves traffic accessing SR 7 and SR 440.

Before the 1953 renumbering, TRUCK US 1-9, as with other U.S. Highways in New Jersey, had a corresponding State Highway. West (signed south) of the intersection with Route 440, the road was Route 25M (it had been Route 25 until that was moved to the Pulaski Skyway), and north of Route 440, it was part of Route 1, which continued south on Route 440 and north on US 1/US 9 from Tonnelle Circle.

The part south of Route 440 was part of the Lincoln Highway, and still has that name in Kearny.

Due to the heavy traffic on the road, it has been upgraded to a freeway from its south end to about halfway through Kearny. There are also plans to rebuild the part north of Route 7, which was built as part of the Route 1 Extension but bypassed by the Pulaski Skyway, as a freeway feeding into Route 7.
