CRANBURY, NJ – Police are telling residents to stay off the streets tonight as Winter Storm Jonas continues into the evening.

In an alert to residents at 6:15 p.m., Chief of Police Rickey Varga asked residents to not walk out on the streets as municipal, county and state plows and emergency vehicles are working to clear them.

“Municipal, county and state road crews will be working throughout tonight in an effort to clear our roadways. High winds and blowing snow associated with this storm has greatly decreased operator visibility. Since most sidewalks have not yet been cleared, these conditions can prove to be extremely hazardous for pedestrians walking in roadways,” Varga’s alert said. “We ask our residents to refrain from walking in roadways this evening. However, if you find the need to be out, please consider walking against traffic and remain vigilant to any and all vehicles.”
