New York-New Jersey region transportation recovery

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

The last of New York City's tunnels to be closed will be reopened Monday and one of the main NJ Transit lines will be back on track.

Video from New Jersey Transit shows a transformer explosion on the Raritan line while the water rises along the coastline.

Another video shows the Hoboken terminal flooded.

More video from exchange place in Jersey City shows the storm raging and the waters rushing into the PATH station.

The videos give you a glimpse of how many problems there were. But now things are getting back on track.

The most heavily damaged New Jersey transit line, from Long Branch to New York City, will resume Monday. That gives people who have work along the coast some relief.

In New York City, the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel will fully reopen on Monday, except to truck traffic. It was flooded after the storm.

Many flooded PATH stations have reopened, but service remains suspended at the Hoboken, Exchange Place and the World Trade Center stations as recovery efforts continue.
