Press Release Number: 56-2014
PATH service between Newark and Journal Square is currently suspended while work crews repair a damaged Conrail catenary pole that is leaning over PATH tracks just west of the Journal Square station.
The pole was damaged due to high winds that moved through the region last night. A crane is being brought in to make the critical repairs to the pole and allow PATH service to resume.
NJ Transit will cross honor PATH tickets on its trains from Newark into New York City. In addition, PATH will run additional service between Journal Square and 33rd Street and Journal Square and the World Trade Center.
