Overhead wire problems are causing big delays for westbound Northeast Corridor traffic, inconveniencing tens of thousands of commuters.

A New Jersey transit spokesman said delays on the corridor are expected to run one to two hours. Three stations are being bypassed: Metuchen, Edison and New Brunswick. Eastbound service is expecting 30 minute delays. Tickets are being cross-honored.

An Antrak spokesman, Cliff Cole, said there are significant delays between Metropark and  Trenton because of overhead wire problems in the area of Iselin, N.J.

Crews are on the scene working on the problem.
