Hamilton Beach Residents Fed Up With Potholes On 104th Street
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Dips, bumps and potholes are causing major pain for some residents in Queens.
Potholes and sinkholes can be seen peppered throughout 104th Street in Hamilton Beach, the area’s main roadway.
Residents say the problem has been going on for nearly 10 years, and that calls for actions have only resulted in patches, not repaving, CBS 2 reported.
A spokesman for the Department of Transportation said it does not have the resources to make long-term changes to the road.
But neighbors say something needs to be done.
“We understand that this is a major project, but if they just came in and surfaced it, made it leveled, it would take away a lot of the ills that this has caused,” said one resident.
The DOT said it will look to include 104th Street in a future reconstruction schedule and will continue to monitor the road.
