States traversed: Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina
US Route 13 runs from the Philadelphia area down the Delmarva Peninsula to the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, where it diverts southwesterly to end in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The northern end is at US Route 1 in Morristown, Pennsylvania, right across the Delaware River from Trenton, New Jersey. US Route 13 passes through Philadelphia and Chester to become the only highway that enters Delaware through its northern border and exits through its southern border. Wilmington, Dover, and Seaford, are some of the locales traversed by US Route 13 in Delaware. US Route 13 continues to become the highway designation crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel into the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. In that area, US Route 13 diverts southwesterly through portions of eastern North Carolina, including Greenville and Goldsboro. The southwestern end occurs at Interstate 95 in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
My photo for US Route 13 is a northbound trailblazer with the central circle of Newton Grove, North Carolina, a town along Interstate 40. The central circle is a large roundabout between US Route 13, US Route 701, and the concurrency of North Carolina Routes 50 and 55. This trailblazer allows travelers that ended up on US Route 13's northbound leg that they have made the right choice (or the wrong choice!). I took this photo driving from the Raleigh Airport to the Wilmington area, for a nice beach vacation in July 2019. Back to the nationwide main page. Back to the home page.
