"This is not a plan and this is not a project," NJ DOT Spokesman Joseph Dee said. "This is a conversation starter and funding has not been identified."
New Jersey Department of Transportation is considering an idea to reconfigure the jughandles on Route 1 and improve commuter traffic, following a failed experiment to close the jughandles last summer. The area up for discussion would affect a stretch of Route 1 from the Dinky railroad overpass south of Washington Road intersection to the Millstone River bridge just north of Harrison Street, Princeton Engineer Jack West said. NJ DOT Spokesman Joseph Dee said the new idea for the jughandles is just that- an idea. "This is not a plan and this is not a project," Dee said. "This is a conversation starter and funding has not been identified." "We made a commitment to the communities back when we pulled the plug on the no left turn pilot …

A West Windsor resident launched an online petition requesting that state officials abort the project. DOT representatives never specified what would determine the project’s success or failure: many residents see only failure.
In what seems to be a growing movement against the Route 1 jughandle closures, a resident of Penns Neck in West Windsor has launched an online petition asking the New Jersey Department of Transportation to end the 12-week pilot program. The closures- which prohibit drivers from turning left off Route 1 north at Washington Road and Harrison Street- aim to reduce congestion along Route 1 north through Lawrenceville, West Windsor and Plainsboro. If the trial- which began in early August- is a success, the state plans to close jughandles permanently. But what confuses many people is that DOT representatives have never specified what would determine the project’s success or failure. Many residents see only failure. “The NJDOT implemented the …
