how far north and south does US hwy 13 to?

Does US highway 13 go further north than Morrisville, NJ or further south than Eastover/Wade, NC? There's an article in Hemmings about US 13 being the first divided highway in the world in the 30s. Obviously not all the way from NC to NJ. I'm just curious if there's more to the highway than I see in Google maps.

Doh! That's Morrisville, PA.

Anyway, a search of Morrisville, PA using google maps shows hwy 13 in a US highway shield running north-south about 2 miles west of Williamson Park. It's Pine Grove Rd north of US 1 and Bristol Pike south of US 1. Somewhere around Yardley it becomes PA route 32.

I'm no expert on that area. Just reporting what I see in google maps.

I live in Yardley, PA. Hwy 13 terminates about a mile north after crossing over RT 1 where it becomes Pine Grove Rd. Pine Grove Rd is rather short, merges into Yardley-Morrisville Rd which leads to Yardley. When in Yardley you need to make a right and then left to get onto Rt 32. Rt 32 is also known as River Rd which is very scenic and a wonderful drive with its twists and turns. River Rd follows the Delaware River for many miles.
