Flooding leads to shutdown on NJ Transit line

5-2-14

BOONTON, N.J. (AP) — Service remains suspended along a section of New Jersey Transit’s Montclair-Boonton Line until Monday while workers repair a track washout caused by flooding.

Buses will be available to shuttle passengers between Montclair State University and Denville.

Midtown Direct service is not affected.

NJ Transit says flooding washed away the stones that support the rails between Boonton and Towaco stations early Thursday. The agency says repairs require an engineering assessment, excavation of a compromised drain pipe, replacing the stones and surfacing the track bed.
