  • Route 25 was a major state highway in New Jersey, United States prior to the 1953 renumbering, running from the Benjamin Franklin Bridge in Camden to the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City. The number was retired in the renumbering, as the whole road was followed by various U.S. Routes - US 30 coming off the bridge in Camden, US 130 from the Camden area north to near New Brunswick, US 1 to Tonnele Circle in Jersey City, and US 1 Business to the Holland Tunnel. Route 1 largely became Route 25 in the 1927 renumbering. Route 25 was best known for the 13-mile Route 1 Extension, which became the first controlled-access highway or "super-highway" in the United States that also connected the high traffic volume from the Holland Tunnel to the rest of New Jersey. The Holland Tunnel was the first vehicular connection between New York City and New Jersey that were separated by the Hudson River. Route 1 Extension was built between 1925 - 1932 and was best known for the Pulaski Skyway. The Pulaski Skyway and portions of the currently designated Route 139 have been listed on the federal and NJ state registers of historic places since 2005 as part of a nominated portion of the Route 1 Extension.
