THE BRONX - Residents and local officials are fed up after sinkholes opened up along Seymour Avenue again.

Sinkholes have been an issue along the Pelham Gardens street since at least 2009.

The Department of Environmental Protection says it is patching up the holes, but the underlying cause is erosion beneath the street.

Councilman James Vacca says the street needs a capital reconstruction job to close up the sinkholes once and for all.
