City: Don't drive!

CITY OF HOBOKEN WORKING TO CLEAR STREETS; RESIDENTS URGED NOT TO DRIVE

Six plows have been out continuously cleaning Hoboken’s streets since Sunday afternoon. The City has brought in a private contractor to help, and nine plows are currently on the road, with more on the way.

Despite the plowing, drifting snow due to strong winds has re-covered streets and made them treacherous to drive on. A state of emergency remains in effect, and residents are strongly urged to stay home and not drive. Only vehicles with chains or snow tires should be on the roads.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer thanks Hoboken Environmental Services employees, the Hoboken Police Deptment, and the Hoboken Fire Department for their dedicated service during this challenging blizzard. In addition she thanks Hudson County, which has been plowing continuously in Hoboken since Sunday, as well as Stevens Institute and NJ Transit, which are continuing to plow their respective areas as well.
