THE BRONX - Some Westchester Square residents say they've waited 30 years to finally see their street being repaved. 

Crews are hard at work repairing Marvin Place, a narrow road that neighbors say has been riddled with potholes and giving vehicles flat tires for nearly three decades. 

People in the area say that it took a long time to get the attention of the Department of Transportation. They even signed several petitions over the years with the Westchester Square Civic Association at the forefront of the battle. 

When the city is done milling the road, residents plan to clean it up and plant more trees, making it even more of a new start for the community.
