PARAMUS - All lanes on Route 17 in Paramus have been reopened after a gas main break stalled traffic Monday morning.
The call initially came in as a water main break, but crews soon discovered it was actually a gas main that broke in the southbound lanes of Route 17 near Ridgewood Avenue.
PSE&G fully repaired the break by 2 p.m. and restored gas service to a strip mall in the area. No residents were affected by the gas outage.
The cause of the gas main break is under investigation.
