Superstorm Sandy

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Exchange Place and World Trade Center stations will be closed between Friday night and early Monday morning over the next two weekends.

Workers along the PATH system are still removing corrosive salt from the rails and tunnels left behind more than a year ago by Superstorm Sandy.

Additional PATH trains will run on Journal Square to 33rd Street by way of the Hoboken Line.

The West Concourse at World Trade Center will remain open and accessible during the outages.

Elevators and escalators will not be available at Newport Station this Sunday between midnight at 7 a.m. while workers make electrical repairs.

The use of generators will mean dimmer station lighting as well.
