Water Main Break Backs Up Route 3 Traffic

Travel remains slow along a stretch of Route 3 in northern New Jersey, as crews continue to repair a major water main break.

The pipe broke early Monday just east of Route 17 in East Rutherford, near MetLife Stadium, forcing the closure of Route 3′s eastbound lanes in the area. That caused extensive delays during the morning commute, as vehicles were diverted to the New Jersey Turnpike and other major roadways.

Officials said repairs were ongoing as of 4 p.m., and it was hoped that the work would be completed sometime early Monday night.

Drivers were being urged to allow extra travel time for Monday night’s commute.
