Movable Bridge Gets Stuck, NJ Transit Lines Suspended

View Comments ()


    Several NJ Transit lines were suspended for a time Friday after a movable bridge over the Hackensack River became stuck Friday.

    NJ Transit said Amtrak's Portal Bridge was "stuck in the open position."

    The bridge swings 90 degrees to let boats past but occasionally fails to lock closed.

    Rail service later resumed by about 2 p.m. but delays were expected.
