Uptown Traffic Nightmare

Temp Power Outage
Power is temporarily off from Willow to Clinton, 11th to 16th Streets – while PSE&G fixes the transformer in Weehawken.
Turtles move faster
The two bridges uptown – which are the main ways in and out of Hoboken – have been a traffic nightmare for the past couple hours.
A transformer explosion on 19th and Park in Weehawken caused Park Avenue to be closed – and diverting traffic. Every surrounding road became backed up – and is only getting worse as the night progresses – including the viaduct on 14th Street.
One simple incident causes widespread inconveniences for everyone – on a Sunday afternoon. Imagine what it’ll be like when thousand upon thousands of extra residents live here?
