Post-Storm Road Clearing Status, Sunday 9:00 PM

Posted on January 24, 2016

All Township roads are now passable. Department of Public Works crews will be working during the week to widen travel lanes and continue to improve roadway conditions.
Montgomery Township received up to 30 inches of snow in less than 24 hours.  Our road crews have been plowing around the clock since midnight Friday, concentrating on our main roads and crews are currently working on subdivision roadways. The rapid accumulation of snow and high winds created drifts which made it difficult for smaller plow trucks to clear snow during the storm.
Help Montgomery Clear Roads: Remove trash cans from near street & clear snow to the plow’s down-drift side of your driveway (right side if facing street). Please do not shovel snow into the streets.  If you have a fire hydrant near your home, please work with neighbors to keep it from cleared from snow.
Go to www.mtsd.k12.nj.us for further information. Kid Connection Pre-School Program is closed for Monday and are all public schools in Montgomery Township. Montgomery Township municipal offices will be open at 8 a.m. Monday, as usual.
See the Township DPW Winter Seasonal Notices page for further guidances: http://www.twp.montgomery.nj.us/departments/public-works/seasonal-notice/#snow .
As the snow melts this week, please be careful of crossing any areas of water running across roadways.  Streams may still be rising for days following heavy precipitation.

Thank you to all residents for your cooperation and patience during and after the snow storm as we continue to work to improve road conditions.
