"Another NJ very tall truck hit the tree. He had 3ft + from the green wall! He just forced the truck through. Why won't they close this block to truck/bus traffic????"
A cement pour continues to take place tonight at 535 Carlton Avenue. There was no notice of the late night work before the work took place -- I stumbled on it trying to identify where the noise was coming from. I documented it at 6:15 PM and again at 7:15 PM. You can see the fellow with the orange vest sending a text in the video below. A community notice from the Pacific Park Community Liaison, but not the State went out at 6:45.
Two trees were damaged (one significantly) on Dean Street west of Carlton Avenue this weekend. My understanding is the damage occurred on Saturday sometime, (or at least was first observed on Saturday). The damage is high up in the case of both trees. One tree lost a large branch and another tree is scraped similarly to the trees previously damaged by trucks on Carlton and Dean Streets. If the damage was from a truck, it must have been a tall one.
The green fence gate at the corner of Dean & Carlton is being used regularly for cement deliveries, neighbors say, and just happens that I've seen 2 in the last 2 days. Is this exit from the gate onto Carlton part of the new exception as well?
Truck this morning on Dean.
Concrete truck uses Dean St. for delivery to block 1129 - thought I had the video running, but seems like it didn't work out. A neighbor who usually walks Dean St. to take/pick-up her kid at school said she sees this often in the morning. She then alerted me to another incident, filed next.
