Westwood on top of the snow, making your commute safer

ONLY ON CLIFFVIEW PILOT : Here’s a big-time thumbs up to Westwood officials, who had plows out overnight clearing roads for those residents who had to get out in the morning, as well as for those businesses that can’t afford to stay closed — especially with at least a foot of snow expected to fall by dawn.

State and municipal offices were planning delayed openings, and school districts were taking snow days, but the local plows were out in force as early as 4 a.m., once the snowfall had stopped, even on the lesser travelled roadways.

New Jersey State Police, who activated their emergency operations center at 6 last night, are working with all 21 county offices of emergency management and the National Weather Service throughout the duration of the storm.

As with the past two storms, bus delays are expected.

And although commuters may have longer waits at the train station, NJ Transit said it’s operating on a regular weekday schedule.


The agency will cross-honor transit tickets with light rail trains and bus service through 7 p.m., a spokesman said.

Commuters should board at the end of each car and not in the middle, where the doors will remain closed to prevent ice building, said the spokesman, Dan Stessel.

Despite the snow, the NJ Poison Control Center is fully staffed and fielding calls all day. During the last storm, the agency reported receiving hundreds of calls to help those who thought they or their children had been involved in a potentially poisonous situation. This becomes critical at a time like this, when frightened people call an ambulance — or, worse, try to make it to the hospital on their own. The first thing to do is to call the experts: 800-222-1222 .
