Use caution as roads may be slippery
(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced the Winter Weather Alert will be lifted at 7 p.m. and the NJ State Police announced the Commercial Vehicle Travel Restriction was lifted effective at 5 p.m. for all Interstate highways.
All vehicles previously listed in the restriction are able to resume normal travel. State Highways are wet, but in good condition. However, motorists should stay vigilant as there could be slippery roadways, some flooding, and there may be patches of black ice. If you are driving tonight, use caution as road conditions may change quickly.
All precipitation is expected to end by early morning. Black ice and slippery conditions, particularly in the northern and western parts of the state, will be the main concern overnight and into early morning. Our crews will continue to work through the night to make sure roads are in good condition before the Thursday morning commute.
NJDOT will be using Variable Message Signs throughout the storm to provide updates. Once conditions improve, NJDOT will lift the Winter Weather Congestion Alert.
