County Route 546, abbreviated CR 546, is a county highway in the U.S. state of New Jersey. The highway begins at the Washington Crossing Bridge at Titusville, New Jersey and extends 9.98 miles (16.06 km) from Route 29 in Hopewell Township to U.S. Route 1 in Lawrence Township.

Route description[edit]

CR 546 at its eastern terminus at US 1 in Lawrence Township. Bakers Basin Road continues ahead.

CR 546 begins at an intersection with Route 29 in Hopewell Township, heading northeast on two-lane undivided Washington Crossing-Pennington Road. Past Route 29, the road crosses over the Delaware River on the Washington Crossing Bridge and connects to PA 532 in Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. CR 546 runs northeast from the western terminus into wooded areas of Washington Crossing State Park. After a turn to the east, the route crosses CR 579 and passes a mix of homes and farms. The road has intersections with CR 637 and CR 611 before crossing over CSX’s Trenton Subdivision. Immediately after the bridge, CR 546 has a junction with CR 631 prior to reaching a traffic circle where it meets Route 31 and CR 640.[1][2]

A short distance after the circle, the route intersects CR 632 and turns onto Pennington-Lawrenceville Road at that point. The road enters Lawrence Township as it heads into areas of increasing suburban residential neighborhoods and makes a turn to the southeast. In this area, the route crosses US 206 and becomes Franklin Corner Road. A short distance later, the road has a junction with I-95 that has a ramp from northbound I-95 to eastbound CR 546. After I-95, CR 546 crosses CR 583 before reaching its eastern terminus at US 1. Past US 1, the road continues east as Bakers Basin Road.[1][2]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Mercer County.
