NJ Employee Early Dismissal

New Jersey State Police Headquarters, Trenton, NJ Governor Jon S. Corzine, and Colonel Rick Fuentes, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police and Director of the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management, have authorized an early dismissal for all State Offices due to the winter weather.

As such, the Governor has determined that State offices will initiate a staggered closing from 1pm to 2:30pm today. This does not include weather essential employees, who shall remain until the normal close of business. All notifications will be made and coordinated by the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management in an expeditious manner.

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management in coordination with the New Jersey Department of Transportation and the Board of Public Utilities as well as various State agencies will continue to monitor the storm and continue statewide cleanup efforts until the event concludes.

Drivers are advised to drive with caution, follow the rules of the road, stay alert and respect the weather elements that may impact their drive. Unnecessary travel is not recommended.

Motorists are encouraged to check for current road conditions at the New Jersey Department of Transportation website: www.NJ511.info.
