Department of Transportation workers were back at it again Monday pouring asphalt into a sink hole on Stockholm Street for the third time in five days and the fourth time this month. Many residents on this landmarked brick paved street have had enough.
"I don't know who's supervising it but this is not the way to fix a deep hole and it keeps sinking in you know," said one resident.
The city filled the hole on Christmas Eve and again on Christmas Day. But by Monday the asphalt was cracked and sinking.
"The garbage truck came in again and then it, there's a hole again!" said a neighbor.
The problem started in June when a small crack appeared next to the manhole cover where the street meets Woodward Avenue. There is also cracking on the road near the hole.
"It's a dangerous hazard here," said another resident.
Last year a bicyclist was seriously injured when he hit a pothole just steps away from the sinkhole and fell on a fence which went through his neck. After several complaints to 311 many here say it's time for a permanent fix.
