Little Ferry Circle
|Little Ferry Circle|
|Little Ferry, New Jersey|
| US 46
The circle was originally constructed in 1933. The circle was largely reconstructed in 1985, allowing vehicles travelling on Route 46 to pass directly through the circle. Further improvements in 1998 which involved condemnation of adjacent properties led to a 73-page court decision.
The circle has been a constant site of accidents, with 40-50 accident per year at the circle each year from 2004 through 2006.
In March 2007, the New Jersey Department of Transportation proposed its latest plan to address issues at the circle. The plan would realign the circle into a straight intersection, complete with turning lanes; prohibit left turns onto many residential streets; and would include construction of a pump station to move water off the oft-flooded highway and into the Hackensack River.
