Since the City Generator doesn't have an "import" function, there's no way to use this trick on old JSON exports (unless you still have the city url, I guess). 

Is there a manual fix I could make to the code in the file to get the same results?

No, sorry. Because of the bug the data in JSON is not corrupted or something, it's just missing there.
