DOT Commissioner James Simpson arrived at a Saturday afternoon protest in Penns Neck with welcome news.
DOT Commissioner James Simpson arrived in Penns Neck on Saturday afternoon with welcome news to most area residents; he is calling an immediate end to the 12-week trial closure of the jughandles at the Washington Road and Harrison Street intersections with Route 1. The barrels, barricades and signs will be removed as soon as possible, probably starting in the next couple of days, Simpson told residents.

Drivers will also be allowed to make right turns from Route 1 north onto Varsity Avenue and Fisher Place, and left from Route 1 south at Fisher Place and Washington Road.

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 …

“All of a sudden the blades broke off," Joe Enhuei said. "One of the blades split into two or three pieces and then another intact blade hit the broken pieces.”
The National Transportation Safety Board has yet to issue a report on the helicopter crash that killed Michael Scarfia, 65, in West Windsor last week, but one eyewitness tells Patch about what he saw that day. Joe Enhuei, said he washing his car in his driveway on Haskell Drive in West Windsor, when he heard and saw a helicopter flying northwest over his Princeton Chase development towards Princeton. It was a windy day and the wind was coming from the northwest, he said. The helicopter was blue with a yellow stripe along the side. He estimates it was flying at an elevation of roughly 1,500-2,000 feet. “I didn't see anything special or different until it was probably less than a mile away from me,” Enhuei said. “All of a sudden the blades…

The casual burger restaurant is centers on a simple concept: burgers, French fries and milkshakes.
Celebrity chef Bobby Flay was at MarketFair Mall Tuesday, personally opening his fourth New Jersey location of Bobby’s Burger Palace. “At any time of year, my favorite thing to eat is a cheeseburger,” Flay said. In fact, when he and his colleagues in the restaurant business used to go out after a long day of work, they didn’t seek nouveau cuisine. “We were never looking for foie gras or caviar, we always wanted comfort food,” Flay said. “I always ordered a burger and I thought ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to have my own burger place.’” His dream came true in 1998, when he launched Bobby’s Burger Palace, which now has 11 locations across the U.S. The 73-seat casual burger restaurant on Route 1 in West Windsor is named after Flay, a chef, …

Mercer County farm market offers state-grown and sourced food and gifts.
New Jersey is very fortunate in the sense that even though it is no longer dominated by farms life, there’s still plenty to remind us why it is called the “garden state.” Because of farmers markets, we're still quick to think of apple cider, baked goods and arts and crafts as the holidays roll in—but we don't necessarily think of wine. And that's a shame: it can be a great gift for the host or hostess of a party you attend. Terhune Orchards, 330 Cold Soil Road in Princeton, is a family-owned and operated destination with a long history. Gary and Pam Mount bought Terhune Orchards in 1975, but the facility had a rich history before that, having been run by the Terhune family for two generations prior. Running the present operations is …
