The MBTA shut the Silver Line tunnel through the Seaport Wednesday after construction on Congress Street caused concrete to fall onto the platform at the World Trade Center Station.

The T will run buses on city streets along that portion of the Silver Line while it conducts an engineering assessment of the tunnel.

“Out of an abundance of caution for T customers and employees, the MBTA has closed the Silver Line tunnel from South Station to Silver Line Way until that assessment is complete,’’ the agency said in a statement. “There were no known injuries as a result of this incident.’’
