A New Jersey city is moving to get rid of the mounds of old snow that have plugged its main streets and sidewalks, officials say.
Jersey City will be cleaning the snow off the area’s major streets starting Tuesday so that businesses, drivers, pedestrians and emergency responders can more easily access sidewalks and buildings, the city announced on its website.
"We thank residents for their patience during what has been one of the harshest winters on record," said Mayor Seven Fulop. "With everyone's cooperation, this can be a seamless process that will help improve the mobility of both pedestrians and motorists as well as ease parking conditions."
The streets set to be cleared Tuesday are:
- Central Avenue from North Street to Manhattan Avenue
- Sip Avenue from Enos Place to Westside Avenue
- Montgomery Street from Orchard Street to Summit Avenue
- Ocean Avenue from Kearny to Warner avenues
- Newark Avenue from Summit to Tonnelle avenues
- Bergen Avenue from Academy Street to Fairview Avenue
- Martin Luther King Jr. Drive from Virginia Avenue to Wade Street
- West Side Avenue from Duncan to Communipaw avenues
- Summit Avenue from Sip to Pavonia avenues
- Monticello Avenue from Jewett to Storms avenues
- Bergen Avenue from Woodlawn Avenue to Stegman Street
- Newark Avenue from Palisade Avenue to Marin Boulevard
Drivers should not park on those streets from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., or until the snow has been removed, officials say.
