West Windsor Police have provided a map (below) showing traffic flow guidelines. Beginning at approx. 9 am on Wednesday, Village Road will be closed to all westbound traffic between Southfield Road and Edinburg Road. Only vehicles intending to reach Congregation Beth Chaim or the WW-P Board of Education will allowed access past the Grover Farm.

There will be a heavy police presence and parking will be under the direction of the traffic bureau. Police ask for patience from those traveling in the area as they expect a large procession in the afternoon, at an unspecified time.

Josephson, 21, a Robbinsville resident and student at the University of South Carolina, disappeared early Friday morning in Columbia, South Carolina. Surveillance video from the area where she was last seen appears to show her mistakenly getting into a car that she thought was her Uber ride.

Her body was found later in the day. A man, Nathaniel David Rowland, has been arrested and charged with her murder.
