Historic Roadways

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) along with the New Jersey Division Office of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the New Jersey Historic Preservation Office (NJHPO), as a result of regulatory issues, conducted a study on historic roadways in New Jersey. This study can be used by consultants and others to identify and evaluate historic roadways in New Jersey. Additionally, a set of design guidelines has been developed that merges engineering basics with historic preservation.

The Historic Roadway Study was developed to focus on roads with statewide significance. This study can also be used by municipalities, counties or other agencies that maintain roads to identify potentially historic roadways under their jurisdiction.
