TRENTON, NJ (MERCER) A protest that was scheduled to happen in all 50 state Capitals did not happen in the Garden State ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day scheduled, Wednesday, January 20th.

In preparation for the anticipated protest, the Capital City took precautionary measures and closed off several streets in the downtown areas. In addition, there was a heavy police presence from the Trenton Police Department, New Jersey State Police as well as the New Jersey Department of Corrections Police.

Mayor Gusciora was on site and present to ensure that everything was under control, “We’re all breathing a collective sign of relief, we’ve noticed that there’s more skateboarders than protesters; we’re grateful for that, and for the police that are protecting the Capital City.”

The NJ DOT has reopened West State street and Calhoun Street to North Willow.
