NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Department of Transportation crews were out in force this week, repairing hundreds of potholes that have popped up all over the city.
As CBS 2’s Dick Brennan reported, crews Friday night were tackling some of the potholes eating up the roads.
DOT trucks rolled onto the battered Belt Parkway late Friday night, including one that removes chunks of the road like a giant vacuum cleaner.
The DOT also said it filled 1,100 potholes Thursday, focusing on a two-mile stretch of the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn. The swings in temperature have carved out craters in roads across the Tri-State area.
“It is absolutely the worst I remember seeing in terms of potholes,” said Robert Sinclair with AAA New York.
