Construction and potholes taking their toll on cars in Throgs Neck
A maze of sinkholes and asphalt mounds is how residents describe the southern tip of Throgs Neck. They say the nearly two years of construction has been tough on their cars.
Drivers say there are potholes everywhere, causing them to have to get their cars fixed often. The construction is part of an $8 million project to add new sewers, water mains and catch basins. But city officials say because of the cold weather, crews have only been able to patch the holes until the warmer weather arrives. The patches they say are only a temporary solution.
Right now, the project is six months behind schedule so after almost two years residents have had enough. City officials say projects like the one in Throgs Neck require a lot of patience from residents and add that everything should be complete by early September.
