At about 7:30PM, a 30 to 40 foot section of the Dyre Avenue Station platform collapsed bringing service to a halt.
The collapse at the busy terminus on the 5 line surprisingly left no one injured as reported by the media. Considering the heavy use of the station as commuters return home, it’s a miracle no one was injured or killed in the incident.
As expected, there will be no service between Dyre Ave and E 180th Street until further notice so commuters should plan accordingly for tomorrow in case service isn’t restored.
