Subway platform collapses in the Bronx

- Transit officials say the No. 5 subway line has resumed service in the Bronx.

Service between Eastchester-Dyre Avenue and East 180th Street was suspended Tuesday night after part of a subway platform that was under construction collapsed.

Service resumed early Wednesday morning.

Northbound commuters were forced to take a shuttle bus from 180th and Eastchester/Dyre Ave. or take the no. 2 train.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a portion of the island platform slab on the elevated Eastchester-Dyre Avenue subway station gave way. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
