NEW YORK - The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has reopened bridges and tunnels after a massive blizzard dumped more than 2 feet of snow on the area.
The crossings were shut down Saturday afternoon by Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo due to Saturday’s blizzard conditions.
The ban went into effect at 2:30 p.m. The governors required all Port Authority bridges and tunnels into the city to close. This included the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, Bayonne Bridge, Goethals Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing.
New Jersey Transit resumed some service.
There were speed restrictions on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway of 35 mph.
