As the cold continues to wreak havoc, the state Office of Emergency Management is advising the public of two issues around the Trenton area.

Due to flooding, the State House parking garage will remain closed through Thursday, January 9th and possibly for several more days.

That is according to a post on the NJ Office of Emergency Management Facebook page.

State offices will be open with additional parking at the Sun Center and 224 Perry Street.  Shuttles are available from there.

Separately, an ice jam has formed on the Delaware River near the capital city just south of the Route 1 bridge. A Flood Warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for parts of Mercer and Burlington Counties along the river until 4 a.m. on Thursday morning as water levels have to the 18 foot level at the Calhoun Street Bridge where the Trenton river gauge is located. Flood stage is at 20 feet.

Flooding is occurring at Route 29 and Market Street and chunks of ice are rising over the adjacent fences along the river. The right lane is also closed on Route 29 northbound between Routes 33 and Route 1  through Trenton.

“Ice is restricting the flow through that area.” meteorologist Sarah Johnson of the National Weather Service’s Philadelphia office in Mt. Holly tells the Times of Trenton.
