The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for our area for heavy snow from midnight tonight until 6pm on Thursday. Current forecasts call for 6 to 10 inches of snow. The City will be applying liquid salt brine today in preparation for snow. Garbage pickup remains on schedule.
Emergency Snow Routes
Drivers are reminded that vehicles parked on Emergency Snow Routes are subject to ticketing and towing when the streets are snow covered. It is anticipated that towing of vehicles will begin when snowfall begins during the overnight hours (current forecast is for snow to begin around 2am), so drivers should make sure that their vehicles are not parked on snow routes after this evening. This is necessary to move police, fire, ambulances, and snow plows throughout Hoboken in time of emergency for the safety and welfare of all our citizens. Emergency Snow Routes in Hoboken are labeled with street signs that read “No Parking When Road Is Snow Covered.” Please note that as of this year, both sides of Observer Highway between Henderson Street and Hudson Street have been designated as snow emergency routes. Temporary No Parking signs have also been posted on 12th Street between Willow Avenue and Clinton Street, the north side of 13th Street west of Clinton Street, and Jefferson Street between 14th Street and 15th Street to accommodate buses and snow removal operations.
