NEW YORK (WABC) -- There were delays on the George Washington Bridge on Wednesday morning as police monitored potential protests.

Port Authority had one lane closed in both directions, leading to delays up to an hour inbound on Wednesday morning.

As of 10 a.m., the GWB bus station reopened with normal service for bus pickups and drop-offs. The northwalk remains closed.

"We are working with our law enforcement partners, including NYPD, to monitor potential protest actions designed to impact operations at the Hudson River crossings, and we have deployed safety and security measures to help ensure uninterrupted operations," a Port Authority spokesperson said. "The crossings are currently experiencing heavy commuter traffic volume."
