The main entrance of the World Trade Center PATH station was closed again Tuesday morning due to falling ice chunks. Ice has been sliding off One World Trade Center in chunks for five days in a row now.

Authorities said the Vesey Street entrance was closed 8-11 a.m.

Riders were told to remain underground and use an alternate entrance, according to NY Daily News. Commuters filed out and around the station, toward the Brookfield Place entrance, across the West Side Highway, one block north to Barclay Street, then three blocks east to Church Street.

The closure and rerouting drew ire from commuters on social media and criticism of the Freedom Tower’s sloped design.
