NEW JERSEY — Overhead wire problems are snarling the commute for New Jersey Transit riders using the Morris & Essex and Gladstone lines, the agency said Monday.

The issue is happening near the Broad Street station, according to NJ Transit.

Several trains are running about 45 minutes behind schedule, while a few — including the 8:04 a.m. and 7:57 a.m. trains from Broad Street — are about an hour late.

NJ Transit buses are cross-honoring, the agency said.
