Township ready for significant snowfall; travel ban in effect overnight
The Cherry Hill Office of Emergency Management (OEM), Public Works and Township administration are closely monitoring the latest forecast and local conditions as the winter storm moves through our area.

At this time, the National Weather Service is calling for as much as 12-16 inches of snow in our area, beginning late Monday, Jan. 26, through Tuesday morning, Jan. 27. 

The Department of Public Works has deployed all available resources to treat local roads ahead of the storm’s onset, and personnel will work around the clock beginning Monday evening to clearly roads and make driving safer and easier as conditions require. 

Hazardous road conditions are expected, and a mandatory travel ban is in place for all of New Jersey beginning at 11 p.m. Monday. Please stay off the roads until further notice. 
  • Staying off the road will allow our plows and emergency responders to operate safely, quickly and effectively. Essential personnel who need to be on the road should be conscious of road crews. Stay clear of plows and allow ample space between yourself and other vehicles. Drive slowly and with extreme caution, and allow extra time to reach your destination.

Trash and recycling collection for Tuesday, Jan. 27, has been suspended in light of the forecast.
  • Please do not put trash or recycling cans at the curb or in the street tonight. Trash collection will be delayed one day for the rest of the week, with Friday's routes scheduled for pickup on Saturday. Please wait until 5 p.m. the night before your scheduled collection to place cans at the curb.
  • A full list of closures and cancellations is posted on the Township website.

Please check on elderly and disabled friends, neighbors and family members who live alone, to ensure their health and safety during this storm. For specific questions or concerns within Cherry Hill, please contact Emergency Management Coordinator Kevin Seta at (856) 432-8836 or kseta@cherryhillpolice.com.

As always, call 9-1-1 to report a police, fire, or medical emergency. For non-emergency assistance, call Cherry Hill Police at (856) 665-1200.

Snow-removal information
Depending on the duration and amount of snowfall, Township trucks may plow your street several times. As snow rolls off our plows, it sometimes accumulates in driveway aprons. Please understand that this is unavoidable and it is the homeowner's responsibility to clear it. Here are some helpful hints to make snow removal less frustrating:
  • Remove portable basketball nets and trash/recycling containers from the street in front of your house. Place them on the grass strip between the curb and your sidewalk.
  • Do not park cars on the street from one hour after the snow has continuously fallen until 12 hours after the snow has stopped. This speeds the removal process and prevents cars from being plowed in.
  • If possible, wait until the township trucks have made at least three passes on your street before cleaning your driveway.
  • Do NOT shovel or blow snow into the street. Snow blowers should be adjusted so they blow snow toward your house.
  • Shovel snow to the right side of your driveway (facing the street) to minimize the amount of snow entering your driveway.
  • To ensure the safety of pedestrians, residents must remove snow from sidewalks following a snow fall. Please remember that children are walking to schools and bus stops all over town.
  • In the event of deep snow, please shovel around your mailbox and fire hydrants near your house for your safety and your neighbors' safety.

When snowfall stops, it takes an additional eight hours to complete the snow-removal operation. Public Works employees will be working around the clock to provide the best possible service to residents, and to ensure roads are cleared as quickly and safely as possible.
