Winter Storm to Worsen, Linger

By Anne Levin

With the winter storm projected to get worse, bringing snow, sleet, and strong winds to New Jersey and the Northeast, Gov. Phil Murphy is urging people to stay home and keep off the roads. As of this afternoon, February 1, New Jersey State Police had already responded to 340 crashes and assisted another nearly 300 drivers across the state. Snow is expected to linger through Tuesday and could hit 24 inches in some areas.

In Princeton, police are asking all residents to remove their vehicles from the roadway to allow the Public Works Department to clear the streets. Drivers are encouraged to park at the Spring Street garage or any of the public parking lots, but not in either municipal lot at Monument Hall and Witherspoon Hall.

Recycling pickup that was canceled today will be done on Saturday, February 6. Trash collection is canceled for Tuesday, February 2. The hauler will begin collection again on Wednesday, February 3, and will likely be collecting through Saturday.
