On June 20, 2019, the northwest region of Gloucester County was struck with a sever rain storm that dumped 4.9 inches of rain on the area in a very short amount of time. This rain caused the New Jersey Turnpike to close at mile marker 20.2. The is the area where the NJTP goes under Route 45. Engine 92 was dispatched to this location for occupied vehicles in the water. Engine 92 arrived to find that the NJTP was closed in both directions due to over three foot of water blocking all lanes. There were vehicles stuck in the water on the northbound direction and all vehicles in the southbound direction had stopped before entering the water. The lone State Police Trooper has already got the drivers of the vehicles out of the water. The Trooper asked for the fire department to provide a blocker for the southbound traffic to divert them to the low speed shoulder. The Engine was positioned to complete this task. Lighting, Cones and flares where deployed to have the driving public to drive slow going to southbound. The crew then assisted the NJTP highway supervisor with clearing the storm drains of debris to permit the water to drain. After about an hour and a half the lanes of the roadway and the fire department was released.
