NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — While today’s snowstorm might have fallen short of the forecasts, it certainly caused a bang in the Hub City.
A good portion of the city is slated to return to its regular schedule tomorrow. But a few lingering effects of the storm remain.
New Brunswick Public Schools, for example, will remain closed Wednesday, March 15, due to inclement weather. The district shut its doors today, too, giving students a two-day break as the public works department continues to clear roads.
Residents who stored their cars free of charge in one of the city’s parking decks don’t need to move their vehicles yet. According to the city, owners must remove their vehicles by 8 a.m. tomorrow if they don’t want to pay.
Code Blue remains in effect tonight, March 14. Amid freezing temperatures and snow, homeless people in the city may find shelter from 7 p.m. tonight to 7 a.m. tomorrow at the Henry Guest House, 58 Livingston Ave. Doors close at 9 p.m.
City Hall plans to reopen at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow. Outside of essential employees, the city government was closed today.
Middlesex County closed its administrative offices today, suspending MCAT transportation for seniors and people with disabilities and its senior meal program. Those are due to come back online tomorrow.
Most Rutgers University students were unaffected by the storm because they are on spring break. But the school did declare a weather emergency effective from 6 a.m. today until 5:30 a.m. tomorrow.
That barred non-essential employees from reporting to work, according to the university. In addition, campus buses in New Brunswick ran on a limited schedule.
