Disaster Waiting To Happen
On January 7 of this year, I reported a hazardous road condition to 311. This condition exists in the island lane going west on Beach Channel Drive between Beach 108 Street and Rockaway Freeway. They are not potholes but fairly large dips in the road. I received a confirmation #1-1- 534574950. In the response, DOT indicated that the site was investigated/ inspected and that it has been fast tracked for repair. I checked the site on April 3 and found the condition in the same condition as reported. On April 4, I called the DOT, Division of Roadway Repair and Maintenance and reported the situation to the office of the Director, Queens Street Maintenance and after a prolonged hold was told that it was not a DOT problem but rather it was caused by water and it was a DEP problem. I asked if they would notify DEP and they replied in the negative. I again called 311 and updated them on the situation.
