Frustrations mount as NJ snow cleanup enters 4th day

EDISON - Many roads remain clogged with snow across New Jersey, especially in Monmouth County which state transportation chief James Simpson describes as "ground zero" for the storm.

Thousands of viewers have contacted News 12 New Jersey to report bad or unplowed road conditions preventing them from leaving their homes four days after the storm.

The after-Christmas storm buried some areas with more than two feet of snow and stranded motorists and airline passengers for days.

Most flights at Newark Liberty Airport are taking off and landing as scheduled as the airport continues to work out the backlog of travelers stranded by this week's snowstorm. Transit across New Jersey is also moving more smoothly, although officials say some buses could see delays in getting around on snow-clogged roads.

Many New Jersey residents say they are dismayed that Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno are both on vacation this week. That left Senate President Stephen Sweeney, the third-in-command, to deal with the massive storm. Christie will reportedly return to the Garden State today.

Acting Governor Sweeney has asked the Christie administration to apply for federal aid to help with the cleanup costs.
