Route description[edit]

US 322 concurrency[edit]

The western 24.24 mi (39.01 km) of CR 536 is concurrent with US 322, running from the Commodore Barry Bridge over the Delaware River in Logan Township east to Monroe Township in Gloucester County. The road starts as a freeway that interchanges with US 130 before turning into a two-lane undivided road that comes to I-295. In Woolwich Township, the road intersects CR 551 and the New Jersey Turnpike. US 322/CR 536 continue east to the community of Mullica Hill in Harrison Township, where there is a concurrency with Route 45. Farther east in Harrison township is an interchange with the Route 55 freeway. In Glassboro, the road intersects CR 553 and runs concurrent with Route 47. The road continues into Monroe Township where it crosses CR 555.[1][2]

East of US 322[edit]

CR 536 splits from US 322 in the Monroe Township of Williamstown at an intersection with CR 610 and CR 690. The route heads southeast on two-lane undivided Main Street into residential and commercial areas. The route turns northeast onto Poplar Avenue and crosses US 322 (Black Horse Pike). Past this intersection, CR 536 becomes New Brooklyn Road and passes through inhabited areas. Upon intersecting CR 659, the route turns north onto Malaga Road and enters wooded areas, crossing the Four Mile River into Winslow Township, Camden County and passes over the Atlantic City Expressway. At an intersection with CR 705, CR 536 turns east onto Causeways Road and crosses the Great Egg Harbor River near New Brooklyn Lake. After the CR 720 junction, the route becomes New Brooklyn-Cedarbrook Road and runs through a mix of homes and farm fields. After an intersection with CR 561C, CR 536 becomes Cedarbrook Road and crosses a Conrail Shared Assets Operations railroad line before turning northeast and coming to the Route 73/CR 561 junction.[1][2]

A short distance later, the route turns east onto Pump Branch Road and continues through farmland and residential subdivisions, intersecting CR 718. CR 536 intersects US 30 and forms a brief concurrency with that route on four-lane undivided White Horse Pike before heading northeast onto two-lane Pennington Avenue. The road runs through residential areas and crosses New Jersey Transit's Atlantic City Line. The route continues into Waterford Township and crosses CR 718, at which point CR 536 becomes Chew Road and heads east-southeast into agricultural areas with some homes before entering the densely forested Pine Barrens. The route passes an agricultural clearing before crossing back into the forests and coming into Hammonton in Atlantic County, where CR 536 ends at US 206.[1][2]
