A scaffolding collapse in lower Manhattan is causing delays for commuters at the Holland Tunnel.

A portion of a scaffold on a building at West Broadway and Broome Street fell to the ground at approximately 4 p.m. Monday, officials said.

No injuries were reported.

The Buildings Department closed the area off to traffic as they investigated. The scaffolding was secured by 7 p.m. and the construction company was cleaning the remaining debris from the street.

West Broadway was re-opened; the left lane on Broome Street remained closed as cleaning continued.

Delays to the Holland Tunnel were down to 5 to 10 minutes.
