Service restored in Hoboken after second water main break, about a half-block from Tuesday’s, in 3 days

Crews fixed a water main break in Hoboken Thursday in the same area where another water main broke Tuesday in Hoboken.



The second water main break happened around 7 p.m. Wednesday after a leak was discovered at 5th Street and Willow Avenue.



The main was shut down overnight for repairs.



The scene is about a half-block away from where another 12-inch line broke Tuesday, leading to a sinkhole that completely swallowed a parked car.
