Streets Around City Hall and Capitol Complex Closed Jan. 16 through Jan. 20, 2021

Earlier this week, a flyer was circulated online calling for armed protests at all state capitol buildings on Jan. 17, 2021. While law enforcement has informed us that there are no credible threats in our area at this time, they are prepared to respond immediately if need be. The Trenton Police Department is in constant contact with the N.J. State Police, the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, and the FBI.

In an overabundance of caution, several streets will be closed around City Hall and the N.J. Capitol Complex over the next few days:

  • The N.J. State Police will close W. State Street from Calhoun St. to Willow St. starting 10:00 a.m. on Jan. 17, 2021.
  • Starting at 4:00 p.m. today, the City of Trenton will close Stockton St. at E. State street, Front St., and the City Hall Parking Lot. The City will also close E. State St. at Barry Hogan Way.

As always, if you see something, say something. All residents should report suspicious activity to 609-989-4000 or call 911 for an emergency.

If necessary, the City will post additional updates on Facebook and its website at Residents can also sign up to receive important announcements by texting ‘Trenton411’ to 99411 or sign up for robocalls at
