Two weeks after the Queens Chronicle published a story on two giant holes in the middle of 101st Street in Ozone Park, the city has filled them up.
How good of a job it did is another question.
The depressions in the street — bigger than normal potholes, but smaller than what are typically seen as a sinkhole — were located in the middle of the street about a third of the way between 101st and 103rd avenues. Each hole had a traffic cone in it to keep cars from hitting it.
That clearly hadn’t worked as the holes were filled with debris that appeared to have come from vehicles, including pieces of bumpers and headlights.
The holes were filled early last week, but a quick glance at the newly poured asphalt show tiny holes developing already, likely as a result of cars driving over the material before it was completely dry.
