A construction scaffold collapsed on Binghamton University’s East Campus Housing project early this afternoon, according to a Rave alert.
The scaffold fell from Building 3 of the multi-phase housing project that is in progress on that part of campus. Bingham Hall of Newing College was the first completed building of this project.
Some injuries have been reported, although specifics have not yet been determined. University spokeswoman Gail Glover insists that people avoid the area.
‘Responders need to get in and out so the area needs to be as clear as possible,’ Glover said.
According to the alert, updates will be made on BU Alert line at (607) 777-7700.
