Noise from late night street work at 4th Avenue, Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street

Several community members have submitted reports of noise from jackhammering at the intersection of 4th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue (see 271, 273, 274, 275, 276, 277, 288, 289, 295) beginning in late August 2011.  Some report filing 311 complaints dating back to July 2011.

FCRC representative says late night jackhammering is mandated by DOT, and noise can't be muffled

FCRC Community Liaison Brigitte LaBonte has provided more information about nighttime work in roadways.

She details upcoming work on Flatbush Avenue at Dean Street that will take several weeks, and states the  traffic mitigation work that is at least partially responsible for complaints about jackhammering will end before the NYC Marathon in early November.  The installation of new water mains on Atlantic Avenue will continue until April 2012.  Additional mitigation work such as the construction of sidewalks will continue until August 2012.  Nighttime use of the staging area associated with infrastructure work in block 1129 will continue through that time.

Some follow up questions have been sent to LaBonte requesting further information about the flexibility of the contractor's timetable for the mitigation work at 4th Avenue and Atlantic, as well as about the possibility of shifting the location of the late night staging area within block 1129 given nighttime disruptions related to it will continue for nearly a year more.

Night Work Without Permit

Flatbush Ave at 5th Ave
August 2, 2011 - 12:52am

Contractors with MFM began working on Flatbush around 10 pm and cut through the street. At 1 am, a backhoe began breaking through the street cut. However, no permit for the work was listed on the city's web site. A representative with 311 said that even though the permit was not listed on the city's website, the contractors may have received a special variance for the construction. Either way, this work was not listed in the most recent construction update, which is deceiving to residents.
