Large construction staging area squeezes both traffic and business operation/construction on Dean Street

Location: 
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
When: 
December 5, 2014 - 10:00am

When I asked at the last Quality of Life meeting if anyone in FCRC or DOT had reached out to the businesses on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt about the MPT plans anticipated to be put in place the next day, there wasn't a direct answer.  A number of businesses have curb cuts and need to pull in and out of their facilities.  One business has a fleet of trucks and needs to load and unload them.  Most businesses depend to some degree on parking.  Can the MPT be modified if problems are identified?
 

Barclays load in blocks Dean Street at night

Dean Street between Flatbush and 6th Avenues
When: 
November 19, 2014 - 11:07pm

In order to load in to loading docks, arena employees stopped traffic including a public bus for minutes.   There appeared to be a back-up in the loading docks and no space for the truck to pull in.

I believe the date of this incident report is correct, but unfortunately in this particular case I cannot confirm it.

Sidewalk on both sides of Pacific eliminated due to construction

Location: 
Pacific Street east of 6th Avenue
When: 
December 2, 2014 - 8:45am

The north sidewalk on Pacific Street east of 6th Avenue is still closed while construction work continues on the LIRR rail yard.  The original 2006 plan was for it to have been completed before the arena opened.  It seems to me the reopening is again delayed relative to the schedule promised more recently, but I will have to check.

Today, Greenland Forest City Partners announced changes to the street network around block 1129, bounded by Carlton Avenue, Dean Street, Vanderbilt Avenue and Pacific Street. The changes relate to the installation of a construction fence in preparation for construction of buildings at 535 Carlton Avenue and 550 Vanderbilt Avenue.

Construction sign left on street (removing parking spot) beyond period of its usefulness

Location: 
Dean Street between 4th and 5th
When: 
October 16, 2014 - 11:45pm

A construction sign announcing the street closure for the installation of the arena roof crane was left on Dean Street between 4th and 5th beyond the period the closure took place. The closure announced on the sign took place over the weekend from 10/10 to 10/12. The photo is taken Thursday evening, the 16th.

The sign was left in a parking space. I believe the installation of the construction signs is left to the contractor/developer.
