New Jersey Route 3

Route 3 is a state highway in the northern part of New Jersey in the United States. The route runs 10.84 miles from U. S. Route 46 in Passaic County to US 1/9 in North Bergen, Hudson County. Route 3 is sometimes called the Secaucus Bypass within Secaucus; the route is a divided highway for its entire length, with most of the highway considered a freeway, except the westernmost part, which contains direct access to a few businesses. Route 3 intersects many major roads, including the Garden State Parkway and Route 21 in Clifton, the Western Spur of the New Jersey Turnpike in East Rutherford, the Eastern Spur of the New Jersey Turnpike in Secaucus, Route 495 in North Bergen. A commuting route for northern New Jersey to the Lincoln Tunnel into New York City by way of Route 495, Route 3 provides access to the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford; the road inspired a story in The New Yorker in 2004 by Ian Frazier. Route 3 was established in 1927 to run from the New York border on the west shore of Greenwood Lake to Secaucus.

In 1929, the western terminus was cut back to Paterson when the alignment west of there was planned to become part of Route S4B. Route 3 followed present-day Route 20 through Paterson and ran along local streets to East Rutherford, where it followed present-day Route 120 and the Paterson Plank Road to Secaucus, it was extended east to the Lincoln Tunnel in 1939. The freeway section of Route 3 between US 46 in Clifton and East Rutherford was completed in the 1940s as Route S3 as well as the Secaucus Bypass, designated a bypass of Route 3. Route 3 was moved to the Route S3 freeway and the Secaucus Bypass in 1953 and was truncated to US 1/9 in North Bergen in 1959 when the Lincoln Tunnel approach was designated as I-495; the Route 3 freeway has seen many improvements over the years such as widening and interchange reconstructions. It underwent a major reconstruction, completed in 2016, to modern highway standards with bridge replacements, including a new Passaic River bridge between Clifton and Route 17 in Rutherford.

Route 3 heads to the southeast, from an interchange with US 46 and County Route 621 as a six-lane divided highway with a Jersey barrier. It is not up to freeway standards; the route interchanges with CR 623 and CR 509 the Garden State Parkway, where it interchanges with the southbound lanes and the northbound lanes. All interchange movements are present between Route 3 and the Garden State Parkway, except from the southbound Garden State Parkway to westbound Route 3 and from eastbound Route 3 to the northbound Garden State Parkway. Past the Garden State Parkway, Route 3 turns into a six-lane freeway, not designed to Interstate Highway standards, it interchanges with CR 622, before it passes over Norfolk Southern's Newark Industrial Track line and intersects CR 603, which heads south into Nutley to become Route 7. The next interchange is for CR 601. Past that interchange, Route 3 passes over NJ Transit's Main Line and comes to an interchange with Route 21 before passing over the route. Route 3 crosses the Passaic River on a fixed bridge, which replaced a double-leaf trunnion bascule bridge in 2013, into Rutherford, Bergen County.

Just after crossing the river, the route interchanges with CR 507. The freeway continues through a residential area and comes to an exit that provides access to southbound Route 17. Past this interchange, Route 3 is paralleled by Route 17 to the south until Route 3 interchanges again with Route 17, which continues to the north of Route 3; the route widens to eight lanes and enters the New Jersey Meadowlands, crossing into East Rutherford and passing over NJ Transit's Bergen County Line and Berrys Creek. Route 3 passes to the south of the Meadowlands Sports Complex, containing MetLife Stadium, the Meadowlands Racetrack; the route narrows back to six lanes and comes to a ramp which provides access to the Western Spur of the New Jersey Turnpike. Route 3 interchanges with Route 120 and the carriageways separate; the route becomes eight lanes again. Route 3 crosses the Hackensack River into Hudson County, it interchanges with the Meadowlands Parkway and continues southeast into a residential area with the carriageways joining back together.

At the interchange with CR 681, Route 3 widens into a local-express lane configuration with three express lanes and local lanes each in the eastbound direction and two express lanes and three local lanes in the westbound direction. The route passes by the Mill Creek Mall and crosses under the Eastern Spur of the New Jersey Turnpike. Route 3 comes to an eastbound exit and entrance with Harmon Meadow Boulevard and features a cloverleaf interchange with Paterson Plank Road; the route crosses the Penhorn Creek into North Bergen. In North Bergen, the route comes to a truck-restricted eastbound ramp for eastbound Route 495. Route 3 interchanges with Route 495, which provides access to the New Jersey Turnpike and the Lincoln Tunnel. Past this interchange, the local-express lane configuration ends and Route 3 heads southeast as a four-lane highway; the route meets a westbound exit and entrance for the North Bergen Park & Ride, a park and ride lot serving NJ Transit buses, passes over New York and Western Railway's New Jersey Subdivision line and Conrail Shared Assets Operations' Northern Branch line before it comes to its terminus at a traffic light with US 1/

Cogglesford Mill

Cogglesford Mill is a Grade II listed working watermill in Sleaford, Lincolnshire. It is the last working Sheriff's Mill in England; the mill sits to the north of Sleaford on banks of River Slea. There is archaeological evidence of a Saxon mill on the site and records in the Domesday book of mills; the ford from which the mill takes its name is where the Roman road now called Mareham Lane crossed the Slea. The original crossing, no longer extant, is a few hundred yards downstream of the mill, close to the current footbridge. There were many other mills along the river at various times. During the construction of the Sleaford Navigation, in the 1790s, locks were provided at each of the mills to maintain the necessary head. After the navigation closed and as the locks fell into repair they were replaced by weirs, the weir at Cogglesford is elaborate, having to maintain the head of this still working mill. Cogglesford mill was assigned a listed status on 20 July 1973; the mill is open to the public 7 days a week during the summer and Organic stoneground flour is milled there and sold in shop.
