Middletown commuters need to think about an early day
Northern Monmouth residents working outside the area need to think about making it in early day. Routes 35 and 36 are not great as a result of the sleet, snow and rain. Slush is building up. But secondary roads like Palmer Avenue, New Monmouth Road and King's Highway are getting very bad. Some good news is that Middletown-Lincroft Road, especially in the area near the intersection of Nut Swamp Road and Dwight Road is looking clear and is as passable as can be expected.
There have already been some problems on King's Highway and at least one accident at around 1 p.m. that I witnessed. It did not look serious. But traffic is moving slow and not all roads are getting the same level of play from the sanders out on the road.
It's a definitely good idea to make it an early day. Visibility is not great and there is no sign of a let up.
