TRAFFIC ADVISORY - Overnight Rain and Snow May Produce Flooding; Residents Asked to Observe No Parking on Snow Covered Roadways

Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose reports that rain and snow overnight may produce flooding in certain areas.

Rain is expected overnight before 1 a.m., with snow mixing in and continuing after 3 a.m. on Tuesday. Snow is expected to continue on Wednesday before noon with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches possible.

All residents are asked to observe the city’s “No Parking on Snow Covered Roads” regulations due to the expected snowfall. Signs have been posted on streets throughout the City of Newark to notify motorists of the streets designated for no parking during snow storms. Motorist and residents are urged to look for the sign pictured below to identify the streets where the parking ban will be enforced.

Violators can expect to be issued a summons and towed. These regulations are essential to the removal/plowing of snow and salting operations and to allow emergency vehicles to pass. Whenever possible, off-street parking is recommended during snow storms. That may mean partnering with a neighbor to use their driveway.

All residents are reminded that tossing snow into the street is against the law, and violators will be fined.

Please check our website for a list of streets designated for No Parking and those to avoid due to flooding. This link can be found at the Department of Public Safety’s website: Click Police Division, Media Room and Weather.

Please call: 973-733-6000 for non-emergency weather related matters. Dial 911 for emergencies.
