Pothole peril plagues Bruckner Boulevard

THE BRONX - Bronx drivers are calling for road repairs fast on the pothole-plagued Bruckner Boulevard.

Residents in Mott Haven say that two large holes off Saint Ann's Avenue are so bad that several cars have been sent to the shop.

The bumpy road is more than a pitfall for drivers. They're also flattening sales for local business owners who complain that no one wants to risk their tires.

According to the Department of Transportation (DOT) website, crews have filled more than 14,000 potholes throughout the city this year. Drivers say they hope those crews are heading to their neighborhood next.
