Glimpse of History: The interstate runs through Rahway

RAHWAY — Traffic is heavy on Route 1 near Lawrence Street in Rahway in this photo taken in 1949.

U.S. Route 1 enters the state at the Trenton-Morrisville Toll Bridge over the Delaware River and continues northeast, eventually merging with US Route 9 in Woodbridge.

The two routes continue through northern New Jersey as U.S. 1/9 to the George Washington Bridge.
