Princeton area closures and cancellations for Wednesday, March 21

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has declared a state of emergency as the latest winter storm begins. The National Weather Service is predicting that the Princeton area could receive between 13 and 17 inches of snow between Tuesday and Wednesday evening.

Police in Princeton and Hopewell are asking residents not to park their cars on streets tonight so that crews can clear snow.

Most area events will be cancelled for Wednesday and readers can expect that most area schools and other government offices will be closed. We will list closures as they are announced.

Colonel Patrick Callahan of the New Jersey State Police announced that a commercial vehicle travel ban has been put in place for the entire length of I-78,  I-80, I-280 and I-287. The ban applies to all tractor-trailers, :empty straight” CDL-weighted trucks, passenger vehicles pulling trailers, recreational vehicles and motorcycles.
