DOT paves part of Willets Point!

From the Times Ledger:

The city Department of Transportation spent several days during the last week filling potholes and repaving sections of Willets Point as part of what a spokeswoman for the agency called “routine maintenance.” Most of the streets at Willets Point resemble those in a war−torn city — gaping potholes and cave−ins littered among patchy asphalt, gravel and dirt — but the work upgraded the roads facing the new Citi Field stadium.

While much of the area’s roads were just patched or minimally repaved, the area in front of Willets Point’s three largest businesses — Tully Construction, Fodera Foods and House of Spices — was completely revamped. In November, the businesses struck a deal with the city that will allow them to stay in the area for up to 15 years as redevelopment occurs around them.


The group fighting to stay at the Point believes the rush "emergency" job is due to the previously reported stuck firetruck.

How was it possible for DOT to have "repaired" potholes?

In the comments with the original post about a week ago, the morons were denying that there were ANY potholes on those streets.

Well, that's how morons are.

That because it TRUE there are no more potholes in Willets Point !!
.....Only asteroid sized crators and faile patchwork that looks like sharp missle test sights.

I was their 2 weeks ago it was like driving on the moon.
You need 24+ inch tires on a 4X4 to get through some of those side streets.

One crater is over 3 feet deep and over 40 feet wide ! It covers a whole side street bordering 4 corners at the same time.
You can park 8 city busses in it....Im not kidding

The piss poor work the DOT gets away with is mind boggling.

It looks like they just pour this cold black gravel into holes.
No pre-prepping, steam rolling or sealing.
The inspector sighns off within the hour and the crater is back in a couple days with an even BIGGER mess of gravel to sweep up.
You can no longer wheel a dolly or an engine hoist down the street

The city is really abusing those poor people
