A chunk of concrete from the 7 train viaduct along Queens Boulevard fell to the ground this morning in an incident that the FDNY and MTA responded to.
FDNY arrived at 41st Street at around 8:07 a.m., according to a spokesperson.
Photos sent anonymously to the Sunnyside Post show several firefighters from Long Island City’s Ladder 128 at the scene, with the truck stationed diagonally on the south side of the boulevard. Pieces of concrete can be seen on the road underneath the viaduct.
The FDNY spokesperson said they secured the scene and handed it over to the MTA. No injuries were reported, the FDNY said.
The MTA said the incident is being investigated.
The viaduct was built in the early 1900s, and underwent an extensive overhaul in the 1990s which included removing and replacing the structure’s concrete.
