NJDOT Implementing Business Day Protocol for Friday Storm; Avoid Unnecessary Travel and Consider Telecommuting if possible

New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today issued a Winter Weather Congestion Alert and are implementing the Department’s Business Day Protocol based on the forecast for expected snow and freezing rain overnight tonight and into the morning commute tomorrow, Friday, January 18, which may result in difficult driving conditions.

NJDOT will be deploying the necessary resources in advance of the storm and is coordinating its response with NJ Transit and the toll road authorities to ensure the best response for New Jerseyans.

“In order for NJDOT and our regional and local transportation partners to safely and efficiently clear roadways of snow and ice, motorists need to Clear the Roads so We Can Clear the Roads,” the NJDOT said.

The Department and transportation and law enforcement partners are recommending motorists:

Avoid Unnecessary Travel during the storm

Consider Telecommuting, if possible

If you are driving, plan extra travel time

During the morning commute it may be best to leave later to give crews more time to clear roads and to spread traffic out over a longer period of time
If you are driving and road conditions deteriorate, PULL OFF somewhere safe and wait it out

Always STAY CLEAR of plowing and spreading trucks. If they are behind you, let them pass

DO NOT pass between trucks that are in a plow formation

Be patient and use caution

NJDOT will be using Variable Message Signs throughout the storm to provide updates. Once conditions improve, NJDOT will lift the Winter Weather Congestion Alert.
