Access Queens is extremely dismayed by the incident that occurred at 41st Street and Queens Boulevard this morning when a concrete section of the 7 train viaduct came loose and fell to the ground. While fortunately no one was injured, this could've been a tragic event.
Incidents like this are unacceptable. We are calling on the MTA to determine the structural integrity along the entirety of the viaduct to ensure the public's safety and provide the public with a thorough and transparent report that outlines what occurred and any safety measures that will put into place. The MTA must ensure that an incident like this does not happen again.
