Morris County Administrator John Bonanni stated, “With another snowfall expected early tomorrow morning, I would like to encourage the public to take extra precautions while traveling on the roadways. Our Morris County road crews and municipal crews have done a stellar job given the circumstances of this winter’s storms. They will once again be out and ready to deal with the anticipated snow early tomorrow morning. Although the plow trucks have pushed the snow off the roadways for each of the storms, creating safer roads to drive on, snow piles have been understandably collecting. This snow can make it difficult to see cross traffic, particularly at intersections. We encourage those on the roadway to use extra diligence and be cautious. With the AM rush hour expected to be impacted, please try to leave extra travel times and be careful."
The Randolph Township Schools will operate on a two hour delayed opening schedule on Tuesday, Feb. 18.
