This morning, SUEZ Water emergency crews finished replacing the broken water main in Hoboken with a new 14-inch pipe, the City of Hoboken said in a news release.
Testing is currently underway to ensure the stability of the repaired connection and temporary restoration of the roads affected by the water main break has begun, and should be completed by Sunday night.
However, roads will remain closed in southwest Hoboken until the temporary road restoration is complete.
Hoboken continues to successfully receive water from SUEZ through the backup Weehawken transmission line.
The water source to Hoboken could be switched back to the Jersey City connection later this weekend once the stability of the repaired connection is confirmed.
Restaurants and businesses in Hoboken remain open for business and are fully operational during the holiday weekend.
