JFK And Newark Airports Will Open Wednesday; PATH Trains Remain Suspended
NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) –The Port Authority announced Tuesday night that two of the three major airports in the Tri-State Area will reopen on Wednesday.
John F. Kennedy and Newark airports will open at 7 a.m., but the Port Authority warned that carriers would be providing “limited service.”
LaGuardia and Teterboro airports will remain closed until further notice.
“As airports ramp up service this week, passengers are strongly urged to confirm with their individual carriers regarding flight status in the coming days before traveling to the airports,” the release read.
As far as the bridges and tunnels, the George Washington Bridge, Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing are all open. The Holland Tunnel is closed under further notice while the Lincoln Tunnel remains open.
All PATH train service remains suspended until further notice, the Port Authority said.
Also, all public and private bus service remains suspended. However, the Port Authority said some carriers may resume service in the early morning hours.
Meanwhile, ferries between New Jersey and Manhattan are resuming Wednesday. New Jersey officials said the Hudson River ferry service will resume at 7 a.m. Wednesday.
NJ TRANSIT is also planning to resume bus service in Camden.
The transit agency has been closed since superstorm Sandy started bearing down on the state. The rest of the system will remain closed until further notice.
But Gov. Chris Christie announced Tuesday that bus service would resume in Camden on Wednesday, but running on a more limited Saturday schedule.
The Delaware River Port Authority also began running its PATCO trains between southern New Jersey and Philadelphia on a limited schedule Tuesday evening.
