Woodbridge DPW crews are hard at work preventing icing on roads as temperatures are expected to drop Friday.
Since they cannot pretreat the roads, DPW says they have at least 20 trucks on standby through Saturday if needed.
“A lot of times after the rain, the winds will dry things out. Give us enough time and we will maybe be okay,” Director George Brew said.
Icing isn’t the only concern for Woodbridge residents. Some of the township sits on the Raritan River and other bodies of water, which can cause another set of problems.
“Roadside flooding, catch basins, streams overflowing. Anything that’s tidal, we have to worry about, and we do have a lot of tidal areas in Woodbridge,” said Brew.
DPW reminds residents to also clear any catch basins or storm drains now to help prevent flooding.
