Governor Murphy Announces State Offices Will Close Beginning at Noon Today for Non-Essential Personnel in Anticipation of Evening Commute;

Governor Phil Murphy today announced that state offices will close at noon for non-essential personnel due to today’s snow storm.

The Governor has initiated a staggered closing for state offices beginning at 12:00 p.m. this afternoon. The early dismissal does not include essential employees, who shall remain until the normal close of business. Private companies and business should dismiss their employees at their own discretion. No state of emergency has been declared at this point.

“The snow storm continues to intensify across our state, which will affect our roads with heavy snow and black ice,” said Governor Murphy. “I strongly urge all travelers to use extreme caution and allow crews plenty of room to keep our roads clean and safe. My Administration will continue to monitor the storm and will take every necessary step possible to ensure the safety of our residents and commuters.”

The Office of Emergency Management, Department of Transportation, Board of Public Utilities, and various state agencies will continue to monitor weather conditions from the State Emergency Operations Center until the snow storm concludes.

A commercial vehicle ban is still in effect on Interstate 80, both directions from the Pennsylvania state line to exit 43 (I-287); Interstate 78, both directions from the Pennsylvania state line to exit 29 (I-287); and Interstate 287, both directions from exit 21 (I-78) to the New York border.
