Communipaw Avenue Connector (US 1&9) Northbound Communipaw Avenue Connector (US 1&9) Southbound
This is the beginning of the Communipaw Avenue Connector (Truck US 1&9) southbound in Kearny.  Here the roadway transitions from Communipaw Avenue (Truck US 1&9), a divided arterial with heavy business access, into the full freeway connector.  The last business is directly on the right here, just before the ramp to Jacobus Avenue that is visible on the right above.  Filmed May 20, 2002.



This is the beginning of the Communipaw Avenue Connector (Truck US 1&9) northbound in Newark.  The roadway splitting towards the left is the end of the Pulaski Skyway Approach Local Lanes (US 1&9), which merges with the express lanes just ahead on the left and then transitions to the Pulaski Skyway (US 1&9), which is the bridge visible on the right.  Because of substandard design (no shoulders or acceleration / deceleration lanes), trucks have been banned from the skyway since the 1950's.  The "Truck US 1&9" designation was then applied to Communipaw Avenue, and over time the southern end of the route has been gradually reconstructed into the full freeway connector which exists today.  Filmed May 20, 2002.
