Parts of a pedestrian walkway to a downtown Binghamton parking garage fell to the pavement below, prompting public works crews to erect barricades around the scene.

Pieces of a rusting, deteriorating section of the walkway plunged into an alley between the State Street parking ramp and a building that housed the Bar 607 nightclub.

Orange barricades have been placed underneath the walkway which links the parking garage with a longer pedestrian bridge that crosses State Street to the Metro Center.

A large sign has been placed across the walkway entrance from an upper level of the ramp warning people not to use it.

The pieces apparently fell from the walkway in recent days, although a spokesman for Mayor Richard David said he had not been aware of the problem.

It could not be immediately determined whether any of the pieces struck people or vehicles.
