Commuting challenge beginning for NJ after storm


SOUTH AMBOY, N.J. (AP) — It could be a while before New Jersey commuters will be able to ride trains to work, particularly along the coast.

NJ Transit lines remained shut Wednesday as engineers and work crews continue to assess damage on 500 miles of track.

Some of the worst is on the North Jersey Coast Line, where two cargo containers and several boats were pushed onto tracks on top of a drawbridge in South Amboy.

That is affecting trains that run from Bay Head in Ocean County to New York City.

Workers on Wednesday began removing some of the boats. NJ Transit says a barge and boom will be used to remove the containers.

PATH service also is suspended.

The River Line light rail will resume service between Camden and Trenton at 3 p.m.
