- US 9, near Nelsonville to Wappingers Falls
- Main Street and NY 9D through Wappingers Falls
- US 9, Wappingers Falls to Poughkeepsie
- South Avenue and Washington Street (partly NY 9G) through Poughkeepsie
- US 9, Poughkeepsie to Humphreysville
- NY 9H and Hudson Street, Humphreysville to Kinderhook
- Albany Avenue, Old Post Road, US 9 and Old Post Road, Kinderhook to Schodack Center, where it met the road from Boston to Albany
- US 9/US 20, Schodack Center to Greenbush, ending at "the ferry at Crawlier"
