Icy Roads

New Jersey to get much-needed road salt shipment

New Jersey’s travelers in need of help. New Jersey’s icy roads to receive shipment of Road Salt to combat icy roads and recent snow storms.

If you live in New Jersey or have traveled in the area lately for business you’d know how bad the roads have been. No matter how many times you see the plows pass by it never seems enough to take the snow and ice with them. The reason for that it seems is NJ’s lack of road salt.

Thankfully according to this New Jersey, News12 update that is about to change.  Expect the salt to help with propperly clearing the streets and highways and making them much safer to drive on. This should help with the recent traffic issues and should bring a bit of normalcy back to NJ.

NEWARK – (AP) – A much-awaited shipment of road salt is expected to arrive at Port Newark, with another one due next week.

The cargo ship is to arrive from Chile on Thursday.

The Star-Ledger reports the salt is being supplied by International Salt, a primary supplier for the state. A company spokeswoman didn’t say how much was in this week’s shipment.

New Jersey’s efforts to get a 40,000-ton load of salt sitting in Maine have been held up by a federal law that prohibits international vessels from transporting cargo from one U.S. port to another.

State transportation department spokesman Joseph Dee says a barge is on its way to Maine to pick up a portion of the salt stockpile. He says the state currently has enough salt to cover one storm.
