Salt truck crews were out in full force late Monday night into Tuesday to make sure that the roads were safe for travel. Dozens of schools around the state had delayed openings as well.

The snow mostly cleared out by early Tuesday afternoon.

The last nor’easter to come through New Jersey dumped over 2 feet of snow in certain areas and knocked out power to over 300,000 utility customers.
