DOT & DEP point fingers at each other as pothole remains
From the Queens Chronicle:
A sinkhole in a travel lane of Queens Boulevard has grown by about one-third since it was brought to the attention of city officials on May 26, and still was unattended as of Monday afternoon.
The hole, which appears to be at least two feet deep and filled with trash, broken asphalt and other debris, is in the lefthand travel lane on the southeast-bound service road, just past where the road forms a T-junction with Woodhaven Boulevard, across from the Queens Center Mall.
The Chronicle first brought the hole to the attention of the city’s Department of Transportation on May 26, the day after Memorial Day.
Pictures of the hole were published in some editions of the Chronicle on May 28.
