PATH service will resume from Hoboken to 33rd Street on Wednesday, seven weeks after Sandy forced the Hudson River over its banks and flooded underground platforms and tracks, officials said.

Officials said service would run in both directions from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. Limited 24-hour service is expected by the end of the year, officials said.

More than 29,000 commuters use the line, officials said. The tunnels were flooded with as much as 8 feet of water, which destroyed signal and switching systems.

Service between Hoboken and the World Trade Center remains several weeks away.

“The reopening of the Hoboken PATH station is a tremendous relief for our commuters and local businesses,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.
