CLAYTON — The Gloucester County Department of Public Works is busy brining
emergency routes, overpasses and major county roadways Monday in anticipation of the
forecasted 1 to 2 inches of snow expected for Tuesday morning’s rush hour.

Freeholder Director Damminger said, “Although 1 to 2 inches of snow does not sound like a lot after last year’s storms, it can still wreak havoc on rush hour traffic.
If it does snow, we ask that you let plows and salt spreaders do their job and take your time going to work or driving to school tomorrow.”

Freeholder Heather Simmons, Liaison to Public Works said, “Trucks are being loaded with salt and being made plow ready to handle what Mother Nature may bring us tomorrow morning.”

Simmons said that the county has 5,500 tons of salt on hand and two brine tanks that each holds 5,000 gallons.  Brine is made to replenish what is taken out of the tanks and used during the brining operation.
