    The New Jersey Turnpike has been reopened in both directions after being closed for nearly 2 hours near the George Washington Bridge Tuesday evening. The highway was closed from after 5 p.m. to 6:50 p.m. because of leaning power lines near Jones Road.

    The NJ Turnpike Authority said PSE&G has removed the power lines from the roadway and reopened the turnpike for traffic in both directions.

    Traffic had been diverted to Route 46 and the Palisades Parkway.
