NJ 67 begins here. The intersection is a grade-separated split. Lemoine Avenue continues straight ahead as NJ 67. Bear right onto Fletcher Avenue to stay on US 9W. The signage here is severely inadequate, making it easy to get lost for anyone either following US 9W or looking for NJ 67. This is New Jersey, though, so what would you expect?
