A water main break in the area of 5th Street and Willow Avenue got SUEZ repair crews on the scene around 4:41 a.m., according to a tweet sent out by the City of Hoboken this morning.

City officials also said that a water boil advisory is not in effect as a result of the water main break.

NJ Transit then let commuters know that Bus Route 126 would be rerouted through Washington Street, since 5th and 6th Streets were closed as repairs continued.

As of about an hour ago, SUEZ Water announced that they are still working on repairs but had no further information available.
