The route ran from the ferry docks to the north of the Tacony–Palmyra Bridge (New Jersey Route 73) through the community, terminating at an intersection with U.S. Route 130. The highway was a former alignment of NJ 73 before the construction of the bridge. The route originated as Route S41N in the 1927 renumbering. The route was decommissioned and turned over to Burlington County, who designated it as an extension of County Route 607.

Route description[edit]

New Jersey Route 155 began at the ferry docks in Palmyra, just to the north of the Tacony–Palmyra Bridge. The route headed eastward along Cinnaminson Avenue, intersecting with several local roads as it progressed from the harbor and into downtown Palmyra. A short distance later, Route 155, paralleling New Jersey Route 73, and intersected with Broad Street (County Route 543) in Palmyra. The highway continued eastward to the southeast, following Cinnaminson Avenue until leaving downtown Palmyra.

History[edit]

Route S41N (1927-1953)

The original alignment of Cinnaminson Avenue in the community of Palmyra was originally a part of New Jersey State Highway Route 2, which was assigned in 1922, as a part of the original state highway system in New Jersey.[3] Five years later, the highway re-designated during the period between the 1927 New Jersey state highway renumbering and year of 1941 as a spur of State Highway Route S-41,[4] which is currently New Jersey Route 73. The route designation remained intact for several years until the 1953 New Jersey state highway renumbering, when numerous highways around the state were given new designations. After the spur routes were dropped in the renumbering, the highway was re-designated as NJ 155.[5] Route 155's alignment was later turned over to the county of Burlington, who re-designated it as an extension of County Route 607.[1][6]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route was in Burlington County.
