PARSIPPANY —

A pre-fab structure toppled from a westbound trailer on Route 80 in Parsippany this morning, closing at least two lanes while the building was pushed off to the shoulder.

Right around 10 a.m., the structure fell across the right two lanes of westbound Route 80, just past Exit 43. Police and emergency crews responded.

The flow of westbound traffic was quickly restored when the building, which resembles a mobile home, was pushed out of the way and onto the right-hand shoulder.

By 11:30 a.m., only the right lane on Route 80 remained closed as workers continued securing the displaced structure.

No other cars were struck when the structure fell and no injuries were reported.

State police warned of possible backups on northbound Route 287 due to cars en route to westbound Route 80.
