A fork in the road that bends in a loop or "P" shape, letting drivers make a left turn or a U-turn on a busy road without having to slow down in the left lane. Most commonly used in New Jersey.
"Then, you go through three sets of lights, and go through a jug handle..."

The need to make one large curving right in order to make a left. The road branches and loops around onto itself, thus crossing the intersection straight instead of making a left.
Alright, go up route 35 north and take the first jug handle on the left after Red Bank. That should bring you to Oak Hill.
