Winter Storm Update from Hamilton Township
Saturday, January 23

 

Latest Weather Information (Saturday Evening)

  • Snow is expected to continue until 3 am – 4 am Sunday morning, although snow intensity should decrease this evening  
  • Final snow totals will be between 1 ½ to 2 feet of snow

Plowing Update

  • Crews are currently and continuously plowing primary roads (225 lane miles), which must be kept open for emergency services.  Crews must continue to do so until snowfall ends.
  • The plowing of neighborhood roads began at 6 PM this evening, with additional crews beginning at midnight.
    • Based on the significant level of snow, it will take at least 36 hours after snowfall ends to the complete plowing of all neighborhood roads (over 400 lane miles)
    •  
    • We ask for residents’ patience after the end of snowfall on Sunday
    •  
    • Please remember that our dedicated crews have been, and will continue, to plow as quickly and safely as possible, but the significant level of snow will require more time to plow than most typical storms that produces less snow
    •  
    • Once the plowing of neighborhood roads begins, residents can access the Snow Plow Sal application via HamiltonNJ./SnowPlowSal

     

    • After being plowed, asphalt will not be visible on neighborhood roads

 

If You Do NOT Need to Travel After Snowfall Ends, Please Consider Remaining Off the Road (Vehicles are Likely to Get Stuck on Unplowed Roads)  

 

Please Keep Parked Automobiles Off the Road, if Possible – Greatly Assists Plowing Crews

 

It is Best to Clear Driveway Aprons After Your Road is Plowed to Avoid Being Plowed Back In
