Repair on the expansion joints on the upper level the bridge, headed to NYC, caused the closure of two left lanes. The ordeal was clearing by 7:15 a.m., but delays continued.

At its worst,  inbound commuters faced delays of about two hours.

New Jersey-bound commuters are also facing delays up to 30 minutes.
