Pothole patchwork closes 2 lanes on Belt Parkway

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

This rough winter is not just hard on people, but also tough on roads.

Workers again spent the overnight hours patching potholes on the Belt Parkway.

Two of the three eastbound lanes on the Belt between Ocean and Flatbush Avenues were closed until 5:30 a.m.

The Belt Parkway is one of the worst roadways in New York for pot holes.

Drivers are urged to use alternate routes.

DOT workers have filled nearly 80,000 potholes so far this year.
