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.
