EAST RUTHERFORD -  

A water main break in East Rutherford snarled traffic for commuters this morning.
 
Officials shut down Paterson Plank Road while utility crews worked to assess and repair the 24-inch main. Part of the road has since reopened.
 
United Water says no customers were affected as a result of the break. Cars are being detoured around the area at Gotham Parkway.
 
Police say work is expected to continue for most of the day.
