NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – PATH trains resumed normal service in and out of the World Trade Center terminal following police activity around the evening rush hour, according to the Port Authority.

However, the station will be closed Tuesday night, starting at 10 p.m., to remove ice from nearby One World Trade Center Tower.  The station will remain closed through 5 a.m. Wednesday as a safety precaution.

Officials expect to reopen the station in time for the morning rush hour.

PATH riders wishing to travel between Manhattan and New Jersey should use the 33rd Street lines during those hours.

The earlier police activity at the World Trade Center station triggered a service disruption on PATH trains for nearly an hour and a half, beginning around 5:45 Tuesday afternoon.

During the delay, service on the Hoboken line was only operating to Exchange Place and service on the Newark line was terminating at Journal Square.
