Plows begin road cleanup after inches of snow dumped in South Jersey
The southern half of New Jersey was hit hard by the first snowstorm of the winter season.
Neighbors in Main Street in Barnegat say they took on about seven inches of snow on Monday.
In Manahawkin, front-end loaders and plows began to clear parking lots in anticipation of businesses reopening on Tuesday.
One of the main roadways running through the town and out onto Long Beach Island is Route 72. In the evening, all three lanes in each direction were covered in snow.
Plow drivers had plenty of working ahead of them to get them cleared.
Even more snow accumulated further south. The area around Egg Harbor Township took on 13 inches of snow. Plow crews made headway on clearing roads for school buses that need to be on the road Tuesday morning and for drivers commuting to work.
