Pacific Street functionally challenged/closed because of break in water line

Location: 
Pacific Street east of 6th Avenue
When: 
September 24, 2015 - 9:30am

Pacific Street between 6th and Carlton was made yet more challenging today because of a water line break in the sidewalk outside 666 Pacific Street.  Pacific was flooded (as much by construction workers, equipment and DEP than by water), and the sidewalks were closed on both sides of the street.  Actually, they apparently would have been anyway since construction was occurring in the 666 Pacific Street sidewalk.

Due to work in the street at the Dean and Vanderbilt intersection, Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt was closed today.   According to multiple workers involved with the work, it was closed all day and re-opened around 2:15.

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

Location: 
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
When: 
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.

Concrete delivery blocks Dean/Vanderbilt intersection; information about work couldn't be more limited

Location: 
In and around the Dean/Vanderbilt intersection
When: 
August 13, 2015 - 3:30pm

A large delivery of concrete was made to the 550 Vanderbilt site using an entrance to the site in the Dean/Vanderbilt intersection rather than the Pacific Street entrance.  To use the entrance the trucks had to be backed through the gate, requiring the closure of the Vanderbilt/Dean intersection with the use of flaggers.  A concrete truck was also witnessed entering the Pacific Street entrance from Vanderbilt via the north bound traffic lane.

Posillico Tully truck parked in no standing zone; undisclosed/illegal method of entering site detailed

Location: 
South Portland Avenue
When: 
August 18, 2015 - 8:15am

A Posillico Tully truck was standing/parked in a no standing zone on South Portland Avenue below Atlantic Terrace waiting to enter the Atlantic Avenue work area this morning.  Specifically, the truck was located on the northeast corner of the Atlantic Avenue/South Portland intersection pointed in the direction of the traffic.  South Portland is not a legal truck route and is not included in the truck protocols as a truck route, so the truck was not only parked illegally it was on an illegal route.  It was standing/parked right below a residential condominium complex.
