Whitehorse Circle to close Saturday for approximately two months

The Whitehorse Circle in Hamilton will close this Saturday for approximately two months as New Jersey Department of Transportation officials continue work to replace the circle with a modern roundabout.

NJDOT officials said the circle—located at the intersection of Route 206, South Broad Street and Whitehorse Avenue—will be shut down at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9. Throughout the fall, NJDOT’s contractor South State Inc. will close and detour the circle in stages, although state officials said a series of temporary full closures is necessary to complete the project.

The $4.3 million federally-funded project will replace the current Whitehorse Circle with a modern roundabout, where all motorists yield to traffic in the circle. NJDOT officials said the new roundabout will utilize safer entry points and eliminate circle cut through lanes.

The Whitehorse Circle is known throughout the area as a difficult intersection to navigate, and statistics reflect the circle’s dangerous reputation. From 2013 to 2015, 138 crashes occurred near the circle, according to a NJ.com article.

The following signed detours will be in place during the upcoming closures:

Whitehorse Avenue southbound to South Broad Street eastbound
  • Motorists on Whitehorse Avenue southbound will be directed to Route 206 northbound
  • From Route 206 northbound to Irvington Place
  • From Irvington Place to Route 206 southbound
  • From Route 206 southbound to South Broad Street
Route 206 southbound to South Broad Street eastbound (overnight only)
  • Motorists from Route 206 southbound will be directed to Carmen Avenue
  • From Carmen Avenue to Route 206 northbound
  • From Route 206 northbound to South Broad Street
South Broad Street westbound to Route 206/Bordentown Road southbound
  • Motorists on South Broad Street westbound will be directed to Route 206 northbound
  • From Route 206 northbound to Irvington Place
  • From Irvington Place to Route 206 southbound

Contact DEP For Odor Complaints

Residents of Bordentown Township who experience landfill and/or industrial odors in their neighborhood should contact the NJDEP hotline by calling 1-877-927-6337 to report the odors.

If you suspect the odors are coming from the nearby landfills in Pennsylvania, please be sure to also report the odors to the Pennsylvania DEP by calling 1-484-250-5991 during normal business hours or by calling 1-484-250-5900 after hours and weekends.  Residents can also submit an online report to the PADEP by clicking this link:

ONLINE ODOR COMPLAINTS - PADEP

Reporting odors to the NJDEP and PADEP will help the township with documenting the incidents to the authorities that can lend assistance to resolve the problems. Calling the hotline numbers is very important because it will force corrective action.

In addition to reporting the odors to the two state agencies listed above, residents may also wish to consider reporting a landfill odor to Waste Management directly by calling 609-499-0500.  This number is direct to Waste Management.  By calling this line, your complaint should initiate a quicker response from their staff in order to investigate and correct whatever situation may be causing the odors.
