NJ Transit Stalled Due to Overhead Wire Damage

NJ Transit rail riders are facing troubles on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line Thursday morning.

     All trains heading into New York City will bypass Elizabeth and North Elizabeth stations because of overhead wire damage.
    
NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says delays of 20 to 30 minutes are possible on both lines because only two of the four tracks are open.
    
NJ Transit says passengers traveling from those stations should go west to Linden, then transfer to an inbound train.
    
Passengers traveling to Elizabeth and North Elizabeth should transfer to outbound trains at Newark airport.
    
Stessel says repairs are expected to continue through the morning rush.
