New Jersey Transit last week resumed Hudson-Bergen light-rail service at the West Side Avenue Station following the completion of required utility work by the Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority.

The action is the last step in reopening West Side Avenue Branch stations that were closed last year to accommodate work to replace sewer pipes that run directly under the light-rail tracks.

Last month, light-rail service was restored to Martin Luther King Drive and Garfield Avenue stations.
