DEP: Drivers should be wary of Longwood sinkhole

The Department of Environmental Protection is asking drivers to be wary of a large sinkhole on Timpson Place right next to Bruckner Boulevard.

The hole is about 3 feet deep and has a 36-inch gas line just below it, according to the DEP.

The agency says it is waiting for Con Edison to repair the hole, which is located in a high-traffic area.

News 12 has reached out the Con Edison to find out how long it will take to get the hole fixed. Con Edison has not yet responded.
