Storm Prep

 

The Port Authority urges travelers to check with their carriers before going to the airport or bus terminals to confirm departure times. The agency also may impose speed restrictions on its crossings if weather conditions warrant.

The Port Authority's winter weather arsenal includes:

  • More than 200 snow and ice equipment at its airports, including melters that can liquefy up to 500 tons of snow an hour and plows that can clear snow at 40 mph;
  • Approximately 60 pieces of snow equipment at the bridges and tunnels, including 28 trucks equipped with plows and spreaders at the George Washington Bridge, the world's busiest vehicular crossing;
  • More than 2,000 tons of salt and more than 1,500 tons of sand for airport roads and parking lots, plus more than 2,000 tons of salt for the bridges and tunnels;
  • Approximately 300,000 gallons of liquid anti-icer chemicals at the airports, which prevent snow and ice from bonding to run ways and taxiways, plus approximately 1,700 tons of solid de-icers, which break up snow and ice already on the ground; and
  • Plow-equipped trains, liquid snow-melting agent trains and a "jet engine" plow to remove snow from tracks, and snow blowers. Plows and spreaders to clear station entrances, roads that serve PATH's 13 stations, and various support facilities.
