NEPTUNE - The cleanup from the blizzard continues in the Neptune area of Monmouth County where state transportation chief James Simpson has described the area as "ground zero" for the storm.
Hundreds of viewers have contacted News 12 New Jersey to report impassable road conditions since the storm began. Many say they have not been able to leave their homes since Sunday.
Plows were seen working to clear the snow in Neptune this morning. Several bulldozers and front-end loaders were also seen heading toward the smaller side streets; however Monroe and Ridge avenues remained unplowed as of this morning.
Neptune Township officials said that rumors of a work stoppage in town are "absolutely false." Neptune Township Business Administrator Philip Huhn said in a news release, "There are no problems and the workers are doing the best they can under extreme circumstances."
The township also says there will be no garbage and recycling pickup this week. The normal collection schedule is expected to resume on Jan. 3.
The state Department of Transportation says motorists who abandoned their vehicles during the blizzard on Routes 18, 34, 36 and Interstate 195 in the Monmouth County area can call 609-584-5015 for information on the vehicle.
