Clean up crews continue to clear New Jersey roadways after blizzard

As the blizzard tapered off late Sunday morning, clean up crews continued to clear New Jersey roadways.

More than 500 plows worked straight through the night to clear away up to 10 inches of snow in some areas of the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike. While many of the highways are in pretty good shape, both the parkway and turnpike are operating with a reduced speed limit due to slush and ice.

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority is asking drivers to take it slow on the roads. Drivers are also urged to turn on their headlights and pay attention to the slick conditions.

Meanwhile, many residents of the Garden State spent the day digging out their cars and clearing their driveways.
