New Jersey is running dangerously low on salt and could be forced to shut down interstate roads in the event of another snow storm.

Department of Transportation Commissioner Jim Simpson told the Star Ledger that many counties and municipalities are out of salt.

"If we have one more storm, New Jersey is going to have to close its interstates," he said.

The state DOT has already spent $82.3 million for snow removal.  It has spread 372,865 tons of salt.
