N.J. DOT using supervised inmates to clean up highways
Under Clean Up NJ, NJDOT maintenance crews are concentrated every few months to tackle jobs that are too big for a single crew to complete in a short period of time. These concentrated efforts allow crews to make a noticeable impact along a corridor by addressing every maintenance need at one time.
In April and May, the campaign has targeted I-295 at the interchange with Route 42 and I-76, I-676 and portions of Routes 42 and 55 in southern New Jersey; stretches of I-78, I-287, Route 1 and Route 18 in central New Jersey; and sections of I-78, I-80, I-287 and Routes 10, 21, 23, 46, 57 and 206 in northern New Jersey.
Residents and motorists can help the campaign succeed by putting litter in its proper place. Every minute devoted to picking up litter takes crews away from other important jobs like mowing grass, filling potholes or fixing roadway signs.
