Trucks idle in B12 footprint at night again

Inside B12 footprint along Dean Street
April 18, 2018 - 8:40pm

Two LIRR trucks idled inside B12 footprint again.  A video documenting them idling for more than 3 minutes can be found here:  https://youtu.be/BJFHaE_wzX8
There were two types of trucks.  One was a box truck with a cab.  The other appeared to have a crane or winch.  Photos are attached.  A clearer video than what is posted on youtube is available on request.
The fence lining the B12 site is chain link with plastic mesh.  There is no noise mitigation provided by the fence.  

Apparently undisclosed construction LIRR staging and idling in the early morning and without noise attenuation -- B12 lot

B12 site
March 17, 2018 - 1:10am

Last night and early this morning LIRR used the B12 site as construction staging and trucks appeared to be using the site to wait.  The construction alert states the LIRR work taking place this weekend late at night "will be done inside the yard."
The link to the four minute video here (higher quality video available on request) shows a truck idling for the duration, and the entire lot being used for construction staging.  It is filmed at 1 am.  https://youtu.be/vmIUpxx0v9A


Dean between 6th & Carlton - 560 Dean Street
April 12, 2016 - 10:30am

Dean Street, between Carlton & Vanderbilt Avenue, has been closed to my knowledge since yesterday morning and is still closed today. This has created a parking lot on Dean Street between 6th & Carlton Avenues. The honking outside my door has been going on since early this morning. I have a home office in my living room - this situation is both unpleasant and distracting. I am rather exhausted by this development and construction completely taking over our neighborhood.

More on late night truck noise on Dean and Pacific

Dean and Pacific

Here is a report from the same resident who forwarded the information that formed the catalyst for the closed/resolved AYW incident report #http://www.atlanticyardswatch.net/node/1798.

Dean Street jammed with cars; Noise from traffic increased by wall; Carlton Avenue closed without notice

Dean Street and Carlton Avenue
November 16, 2015 - 8:00pm

Carlton Avenue was closed without notice last night and as a result Dean Street was turned into a traffic jam.  It is now a regular occurrence that Dean Street from Carlton to Vanderbilt is jammed.  
At some points in the week the movement across Vanderbilt Avenue on Dean Street is failed as an intersection because cars take minutes to get through the intersection.

Late night construction truck noise

Dean Street from 6th Avenue to Carlton Avenue
November 12, 2015 - 1:00am

Forwarded to me by email (and posted to AYW with permission) from a resident with windows facing south to Dean Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues.
"Last night, like many nights (every night?), I was kept awake by many loud construction vehicles roaring down DEAN street from 1 am onwards.  I notified 311 via mobile app, which did not have a category that suited this complaint, btw.  I chose the closest thing I could find.  PD response was (explitive), as expected.  Here is the reference for you, for what it is worth."

Bay Crane delivery truck idles in bus stop on Vanderbilt Avenue

Bay Crane truck parked in the bus stop on the southwest side of the Vanderbilt/Dean intersection in front of 556 Vanderbilt idles for more than 3 minutes.  It was still idling when I arrived and idling when I left.  Residences are feet away.

Greenland/FCRC fail to disclose 5 am start time of installation of 10 murals; bike lanes blocked Thursday the 13th

Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
August 15, 2015 - 5:00am

Greenland/FCRC Partners failed to give notice to the residents on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues that installation of the Pacific Park Arts murals would start at 5 am, and that the use of hydraulic lifts during that time could be noisy.  The community notice disseminated is attached.  It says simply that the street would be closed for the day.  Because the notice was thin in detail, on Tuesday preceding the event I asked a FCRC representative for any additional information they could provide.
