NYC Department of Transportation Already Fixing New Paving On Staten Island

Just as the MTA is now spending time and money to fix the brand new South Ferry station because of problems with waterproofing and other issues, the NYC Department of Transportation is out on Staten Island fixing the brand new pavement that was laid down two months ago. The $3 million paving job on the Expressway was a stop-gap measure while a more lengthy rehabilitation project gets underway, but the pavement was supposed to last 3-5 years. At this rate, it's never going to last that long, and drivers will be treated to a bone-jarring ride before long if the DOT can't keep up with the stop-gap fixes.
