    The morning commute will get a little easier Monday for some as the Hugh Carey Tunnel, better known as the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, reopens to cars and several train lines are restored.
    Both tubes of the tunnel will reopen to all cars, except for trucks, in both directions at 6 a.m. The tunnel filled with an estimated 86 million gallons of water when Sandy hit.

    All but one New Jersey Transit line will be at least partially restored Monday, including the North Jersey Coast Line, which was heavily damaged during Sandy. Trains will operate at approximately 90 percent of normal peak period service into New York's Penn Station. For more information go to

    And nearly normal rail service is being restored on Metro-North’s Port Jervis and Pascack Valley lines, with trains stopping at both Secaucus and Hoboken. Click here for more info.
