PATH train service to Lower Manhattan resumed Monday morning, but the service was suspended for about 90 minutes during rush hour due to electrical problems.

The service started running again at 5 a.m., but an electrical problem in the tunnel to the World Trade Center suspended the train from 8:30 to shortly after 10 a.m.

Trains to and from the World Trade Center station are now running weekdays from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m.

The reopening of the World Trade Center line means trains running between Journal Square and 33rd Street will be able to make all station stops, including Christopher Street.

Previously, crews had to pump out millions of gallons of flood water from the transit system after Hurricane Sandy, and also needed to fix or replace damaged switching and signal systems.

The Hoboken Station remains closed after suffering severe damage, and officials say it could be several more weeks before it is open again.

Meanwhile, the Queens-Midtown Tunnel had a regular traffic pattern this morning.

The "contraflow" traffic pattern, which creates an extra third lane heading into Manhattan from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. weekdays, returned today for the first time since Sandy hit.

The overhead signal system needed for the pattern was damaged when the tunnel was flooded.

Alternate-Side Parking Returns To Red Hook

The city Departments of Transportation and Sanitation announced Monday that alternate-side parking was in affect once more in Brooklyn Community Board 6, which covers the neighborhood of Red Hook.

There are still some areas of Brooklyn and Queens where alternate-side parking is still suspended indefinitely.

They are:
- Brooklyn Community Board 13, which represents Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Bensonhurst, Gravesend and Sea Gate.
- Brooklyn Community Board 15, which includes Sheepshead Bay, Manhattan Beach and Gerritsen Beach and Homecrest.
- Brooklyn Community Board 18, which covers Canarsie, Bergen Beach, Mill Basin, Flatlands, Marine Park, Georgetown and Mill Island.
- Queens Community Board 14, which covers the Rockaways.
