ⓘ New Jersey Route 129

Route 129 is a major arterial boulevard state highway in the capital city of Trenton, New Jersey. The highway runs along Canal Boulevard, a four-lane arterial through portions of Trenton, serving as an alternative highway to its parent, Route 29. The route begins at an intersection with Lamberton Road in Hamilton Township, heads northward along the River Line maintained by New Jersey Transit until terminating at an interchange with U.S. Route 1.

The original use of route 129 opened in 1961 on what is now I-interstate I-295-295 from Scudder falls bridge to Scotch road in Trenton. The route was replaced in 1974, I-95 re-designated as I-295 in 2018, while the routes of the current incarnation opened in September 1993, together with the former portion of the canal the Delaware and Raritan. The route has remained virtually untouched since its opening.
