A neighbor, Michelle R., would like to warn residents about a very hazardous sinkhole in the middle of 50th Street between Beaumont and Warrington Avenues:
“There is a huge “ditch” (that’s how the city defines a rectangular hole in the ground that develops after a utility company digs up the street and fails to fill it back in properly) in the middle of 50th Street in between Beaumont and Warrington Avenues. It is in the path of oncoming traffic in both directions, 14 inches deep on one side, and not at all visible in the dark. We put white 5 gallon buckets on either side, but who knows if they’ll last… Please watch out, this one is a car killer and potential accident causer.”
Michelle says that she also emailed the Streets Department and submitted an online maintenance request.
