Hackettstown prepares for second nor’easter in a week (VIDEO)

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) –  The Hackettstown Department of Public Works crews took advantage of Tuesday’s pleasant weather to prepare for a second nor’easter.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for all of Northwest New Jersey.

According to WeatherWorks, snow will begin Tuesday between 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. and should end late Wednesday night. Snowfall totals will range from 10.0 – 15.0 inches across Northwest New Jersey.

“Presently the town has a full supply of salt,” DPW Superintendent Scott Armstrong said.

The DPW workers realize that many Hackettstown residents travel to work or school and depend on the crews to clear over the 100 roadways in the town. In order to clear these streets, Hackettstown utilizes its fleet of 9 trucks and 1 loader.

Hackettstown has declared a snow emergency starting at 8: 00 p.m. Tuesday. Any vehicles left on a town street will be ticketed and towed, police said.

“The DPW is also responsible for clearing the municipal, town hall, fire department parking lots and more,” Armstrong said.
