Town Fared Well in Snowstorm, Police Say
Bridgewater was spared further damage.
Despite more power outages being reported around town because of Wednesday's snowstorm, the township is not dealing with new damage, according to Bridgewater Township Police Chief Richard Borden.
"I believe we were spared further damage due to the winds not gusting to great speeds," he said.
Fortunately, Borden said, the township is not seeing additional roads closed because of damage. The only reason for some new roads to have temporary closures, he said, is because utility crews are working on the original outage problems.
And, Borden said, they are moving forward with no current concerns about additional trees or wires falling because of heavy snow.
"At this time, we have had no reports of issues with wires or trees impacted by the snow, which is obviously a very good thing," he said.
