500 Trucks Prepared for Onset of Nor’easter

Salt trucks and snowplows are on the roads or sitting ready as a nor’easter hits New Jersey a little more than a week after Superstorm Sandy.

The Department of Transportation says it is deploying 500 of its trucks in addition to hundreds operated by private contractors.

Trucks were already spreading brine on roads in northern New Jersey where snow began falling late Wednesday morning. Some areas in the northwest part of the state are expected to

get as much as six inches of accumulation. Other northern areas could get up to three inches.

DOT spokesman Joseph Dee says the agency has close to 100 percent of its supply of salt and has opened regional centers in Cherry Hill, Trenton and Mount Arlington to monitor where personnel and equipment are needed.
