THE BRONX - Spring has arrived, but many Bronx drivers have a reminder of the winter weather and the damage it caused to area roadways.

Community activist Sydney Flores says there are at least 50 potholes on Fordham Road along the Grand Concourse and that the tunnel?s ceiling is falling apart, putting drivers at risk.

According to Flores, drivers are being forced into the fire lane to avoid potholes. He says many residents have reported flat tires and that the Department of Transportation needs to repave the roads.
