The Monmouth County Department of Public Works and Engineering has prepared the 1000 lane miles of County roads for the 2-4 inches of snow expected today, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone said in an announcement.
I urge anyone traveling during this storm to exercise caution and allow for extra time to get where they are going as the roadways may be slippery,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the County’s Department of Public Works and Engineering. “We have 225 trucks and equipment outfitted with spreading and plowing capabilities. If you encounter plows or sand trucks, please be alert and allow them to do their work.”
Upon the start of snowfall, County roads will receive an application of deicing material. Snow is likely before noon, then continuing through the evening hours before switching to a wintry mix. Total daytime accumulation is estimated to be 2 to 4 inches.
Sheriff Shaun Golden is advising drivers to slow down, be aware of driving conditions and to avoid quick accelerations and braking.
