U.S. Route 9 is a north–south United States highway in the states of Delaware, New Jersey, and New York in the United States. It is one of only two U.S. highways with a ferry connection (the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, between Lewes, Delaware, and Cape May, New Jersey); the other being US 10. US 9 is signed east–west in Delaware and north–south on the rest of its route. The western terminus of the route is in Laurel, Delaware at an intersection with U.S. Route 13, while the highway's northern terminus is at a junction with Interstate 87 in Champlain, NY, where the roadway continues north as the unsigned NY 471B, which ends in a cul-de-sac just short of the Canadian border.


Route description

Much of U.S. 9 is a two-lane road, with some expansions near more populous areas. The major exception to this is central and northern New Jersey, where it is a wide four-lane (or six-lane) divided strip, especially during much of its concurrency with U.S. 1 and in Middlesex and Monmouth Counties. New York boasts a few similar sections, as well as two short expressway sections near Albany.
