THE BRONX - Massive potholes are making for a bumpy ride across the borough.

In some cases, the harsh winter caused some existing potholes to get even worse, creating a safety hazard.

One pothole, located at the corner of Rosedale Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard, is about eight-feet wide and in some spots appears to be one-foot deep.

The city says a work order has been submitted for the pothole, but says in some cases it can take up to 30 days to fix.

It says residents can report a pothole problem on their website.  If a pothole is found on a highway or parkway, residents can also call 311.
