The following sentence is given:

Instead of going back by the same route he took the Jones Beach Causeway right on through to the town of Merrick and onto the Meadowbrok Parkway until he reached the Nothern State Parkway.

I'm interesting in the meaing of right on through. Explain what that meanss, please.

    Adverbial sense 10: Used as an intensive: kept right on going. Somewhat akin to the Russian "прямехонько". – CowperKettle Dec 3 '14 at 5:59

Straight through without stopping, deviating from his route, or changing roads

He traveled from point A to point B on the same road in a single, unbroken journey.

continuing through:

Instead of going back by the same route he took the Jones Beach Causeway, continuing through to the town of Merrick and onto the Meadowbrok Parkway, until he reached the Nothern State Parkway.

(commas just to break up the sentence a bit, not required.)
