Hoboken Issues Winter Storm Watch, No Parking On Emergency Routes

With a winter snowstorm expected to start overnight Friday into Saturday morning, the City of Hoboken has implemented a no parking edit on emergency snow routes:  Details are outlined below:

A winter storm watch is in effect starting Friday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m. through Saturday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m. Damaging wind gusts of up to 40 MPH and total snow accumulation of an estimated 4 inches to 9 inches is possible.

The Office of Emergency Management encourages residents who do not need to travel to stay home and avoid driving. Residents who must travel are encouraged to take mass transit.

For emergencies, call the Hoboken Police Department at 201-420-2100.

Parking is Prohibited on Emergency Snow Routes 

Residents are reminded not to park along emergency snow routes starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28. When streets are snow covered, no parking is permitted on these streets.

Vehicles parked on snow emergency routes are subject to towing. This is necessary to allow emergency vehicles to move throughout Hoboken for the safety and welfare of all residents.

Emergency snow routes in Hoboken are labeled with street signs that read “No Parking When Road Is Snow Covered.” A map of emergency snow routes is available on the City website: www.hobokennj.gov/snow.

  • Washington Street (Both Sides)
  • Observer Highway – (Both Sides) Henderson St. to Hudson St.
  • Willow Avenue West Side – Observer Hwy. to 11th St.
  • 3rd Street – North Side – Jackson St. to River St.
  • 4th Street – South Side – River St. to Jackson St.
  • 5th Street- South Side – Clinton St. to River St.
  • 9th Street – North Side – Jackson St. to Castle Point Ter.
  • 13th Street – North Side – Washington St. to Madison St.
  • 13th Street – South Side – Washington St. to Hudson St.

All parking regulations, including alternate side parking, remain in effect.

Discounted Garage Parking Available

Due to the predicted storm, a special rate of $5 per 24-hour period is being offered at Garages B (28 2nd St.), Garages D (215 Hudson St.), and the Midtown Garage (371 4th St.) for residents with Resident On-Street Parking Permits or Temporary Parking Permits. Discounted parking begins tomorrow, Jan. 28, at 5 p.m. and ends Sunday, Jan. 30, at 5 p.m.

Garage space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Regular rates apply at other times.

Residents who have a parking permit decal or Temporary parking permit placard are reminded that overnight parking (8 p.m. to 8 a.m.) is available at a rate of $5 in Garages B, D and Midtown every day of the year.

Keep Sidewalks and Curb Ramps Clear

Property owners and occupants are reminded that they have six (6) hours after the completion of a storm to remove snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property, along with adjoining curb ramps or curb cuts.

Residents are urged to assist elderly or disabled neighbors with clearing snow from their properties.

It is illegal to shovel snow back onto streets or onto fire hydrants.

The City performs proactive inspections and relies on citizen complaints to help identify property owners that are not meeting sidewalk safety requirements. While majority of property owners comply with the safety regulations, the City will issue fines to those who do not keep sidewalks clear.

To report an unshoveled sidewalk, please email sanitationinspectors@hobokennj.gov.    

Secure Loose Objects  

Wind gusts of up to 40 MPH are predicted.

Residents should secure all loose objects outside or bring them inside, especially on balconies.

Outdoor tents should be taken down depending on the wind load.

Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines, resulting in power outages.

Please report power outages and downed wires to PSEG at https://nj.myaccount.pseg.com/myservicepublic/outagepublic.

Stay Informed  

Residents should monitor local forecasts for additional advisories, watches, and warnings.

Residents are also encouraged to monitor the City’s Twitter (twitter.com/cityofhoboken) and Facebook (facebook.com/hoboken) or sign up to receive email or text updates by visiting www.hobokennj.gov/alerts.

Instructions:

Please remove parked vehicles from emergency snow routes by 7 p.m. Friday, January 28.
