Assemblyman: DOT made sloppy repairs to Bensonhurst crosswalk

Posted: Updated:

The city Department of Transportation is under fire for what critics call a sloppy job of repairing a crosswalk in Bensonhurst.

The intersection in question is at 86th Street and Bay Parkway.

Assemblyman William Colton says the repair job the DOT performed on a pothole is inadequate.

He says the mound left from the repair is just as dangerous to pedestrians as the pothole was.

The DOT says filling the pothole was a temporary solution. In a statement to News 12, it says, “The intersection is included in an upcoming capital project, which will make permanent fixes to the roadway and improve bus stop accessibility.”
