Encyclopedia > U.S. Highway 9

United States Highway 9 is a north-south United States highway in the states of Delaware, New Jersey, and New York in the United States. It is one of only two U.S. highways with a ferry connection (between Lewes, Delaware and Cape May, New Jersey) -- the other being U.S. 10. US 9 is signed east-west in Delaware and north-south on the rest of its route.

A large section in northeast New Jersey is concurrent with US 1. Route shields on this section, which includes the Pulaski Skyway, often show both numbers in the same shield, with a dash or ampersand between (1-9 or 1&9).

The portion of New York City's Broadway north of the George Washington Bridge is part of US 9, from the northern tip of Manhattan, through the Bronx and into Westchester County, New York, where its street name changes from Broadway to the Albany Post Road. This road's original route from New York to Albany was a post road dating from the early days of American independence, and some of the original milestones are still visible along it.

The highway is mentioned in the lyrics of the song "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen.



As of 2004, the highway's northern terminus is just north of Champlain in Clinton County, New York, just south of the Canadian border, at the last interchange on Interstate 87. Its southern terminus is in Laurel, Delaware at an intersection with U.S. Highway 13.
