New Jersey Transit is expected to operate on time for the morning rush.

New Jersey Transit says the overhead wire malfunction has forced the closure of one tunnel into Manhattan. Amtrak crews are working on the problem.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. says tickets are being cross-honored on PATH trains and NJ Transit buses as well as private carriers. The problem began about 6 p.m.

Separately, inbound trains are bypassing Newark Liberty Airport because of a wire problem. Travelers are advised to disembark at Newark Penn Station and take outbound trains to the airport.
