PENNSAUKEN, N.J. (CBS)–Those who had to drive found it wasn’t a pretty start on Tuesday.
“I think the slush was somewhat slippery and icy.”
Even before the skies started to fall work got underway to make road conditions as safe as possible.
In Camden County, Public Works crews got on the job at 5 a.m. and the work didn’t stop until well after lunch.
Ian Leonard, a Camden County Public Works liaison says, “Got the brine solution to pre-treat before the storm started and then got the trucks loaded as the snow came, started to drop salt as it stuck to the roadways.”
In all, Camden County had about 70 pieces of equipment working the main arteries and side streets.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation had about 2,000 plow and salt trucks.
Many drivers who spoke with Eyewitness News said the hard work from roads crews paid off.
Bob Allenbach, of Tabernacle says, “I came out about 6 o’clock this morning they had the trucks out putting down sand and salt so they were well prepared.”
