HUNTS POINT - Hunts Point Avenue between Garrison and East Bay avenues will soon have a new surface.

Residents have asked the city for new pavement for years. City Councilman Rafael Salamanca Jr. says the area has been plagued with "Band-Aid jobs," meaning repairs have only included patching up potholes rather than resurfacing the roads, for nearly a decade.

Work is scheduled to take place at night to minimize the effect on commuters, and the entire project is expected to be completed in a few weeks, according to the DOT.
