Winter Readiness

Winter Operations Support Team (WOST)

The New Jersey Department of Transportationís (NJDOT) Winter Operations Support Team (WOST) program supplements staff in performing winter maintenance. Maintaining the roadways during winter storms for safe travel can demand around-the-clock coverage that could continue for many days. With this intense requirement it is necessary for additional staffing levels during winter storms.

New Jersey State employees are asked to become members of the WOST program providing their agency/department and management authorizes their commitment to the program. Members are assigned to one of the 80 maintenance crews that may have a need for additional staffing. There are currently 62 maintenance crew facilities around the state.

Members can be utilized in two ways:
  • As a truck driver performing both the plowing and spreading functions.
  • As an Operations Representative overseeing one or more plowing and/or spreading contracts.
