NJ Transit service in and out of Penn Station restored after earlier suspensions

All NJ Transit rail service in and out of Penn Station has been restored after earlier suspensions.

Service was suspended after a fire on the Portal Bridge, which is owned and operated by Amtrak and takes train traffic over the Hackensack River between Kearny and Secaucus.

The suspension started at around 6:45 p.m.

Amtrak crews inspect the tracks for damage, and service was restored with delays of up to 45-60 minutes.

NJ Transit rail tickets and passes were honored on NJ Transit buses and PATH.
