Junction with US 1–Woodbridge–Perth Amboy–Freehold–Lakewood
Toms River-Tuckerton-Cape May; US 9.
Junction with US 1 to Cape May, 139 miles.

The route is paralleled by the Pennsylvania R.R. betwen the Rahway cloverleaf and Perth Amboy; the Jersey Central R.R. between Matawan and Freehold, and between Tomss River and Barnegat; the Tuckerton R.R. between Barnegat and Tuckerton; the Pennsylvania-Reading-Seashore Line between Pleasantville and Somers Point, between Cape May Court House and Cape May City.
Adequate accommodations at short intervals.
Two- and three-lane concrete roadbed except for about 15 m. of macadam.

Running south from the metropolitan industrial area, US 9 crosses one the most productive truck-garden districts in the State, and then enters the pine belt in which the countryside flattens, farms becoming scarcer as the road approaches the shore. The route touches several fishing villages and the gateways to the large seashore resorts. Though never more than a few miles from the series of sheltered bays that provide a channel for the Intracoastal Waterway, US 9 does not come to the ocean until it reaches Cape May City.

At RAHWAY CLOVERLEAF, 0 miles, US 9 branches south from US 1 (see Tour 1). The design of this intersection without grade crossings, built as an experiment by the State highway commission in 1928, has been widely imitated.
