BRONX — All lanes were reopened Thursday night after portions of the wall collapsed and dumped red bricks onto the westbound side of the Cross Bronx Expressway between the Major Deegan and Jerome Avenue.

The FDNY received a call about the collapse around 1:20 p.m. No injuries were reported.

Cars were forced to swerve around bricks on the road.

By 9 p.m., all lanes were reopened.

The wall collapse happened at an intersection that leads to the George Washington Bridge.

There were extensive traffic delays in the area because of the bricks heading to rush-hour traffic, the Office of Emergency Management tweeted. The OEM advised drivers to use alternate routes.
