Customers should expect service delays and detours throughout the day due to local road conditions. As such, customers should afford themselves ample time to reach their final destinations.
NJ TRANSIT’s Morris & Essex Lines, Montclair-Boonton Lines and all Midtown Direct services remain temporarily suspended while crews continue a full assessment of the system this morning. Once engineers determine that rail service can safely resume, crews will immediately begin the service restoration process.
