NEW YORK — PATH train service between the World Trade Center and Hoboken was briefly suspended Tuesday afternoon due to falling ice at the World Trade Center station, officials said.

Icicles falling from neighboring buildings and the WTC station entrance led the commuter rail to shut down as a safety precaution shortly before 6 p.m., said Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman.

Service resumed about 7:15 p.m., but officials warned commuters to expect residual delays.

The Port Authority planned to close the station overnight from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. to clear the remaining ice, officials said.

The 33rd Street and Sixth Avenue PATH stations were unaffected.
