Drivers complain of Bay Ridge potholes

Posted: Updated:
BAY RIDGE -

Some drivers are grumbling about the rumbling ride down 77th Street in Bay Ridge, one of dozens of bumpy roads in the neighborhood riddled with potholes.

The local community board says aging infrastructure is to blame for the cracked pavement on the neighborhood's sinking streets.

Josephine Beckmann, the district manager for Community Board 10, says she wants the city to find a long-term solution that's better than just filling in holes.

The Brooklyn Reporter, a local news website, says there are at least 69 potholes in the area.

The Department of Transportation says it's repaved hundreds of miles of road in Brooklyn since last year, including repairing about 50,000 potholes.
