Backhoe loads dirt adjacent to pedestrian path without a safety net

Location: 
B2 and entrance to Barclays arena
When: 
April 5, 2014 - 2:40pm
311: 
C1-1-955336201

A dump truck has been aligned with the narrow channel assigned for pedestrians to pass by B2 during construction.  The dump truck is being filled with dirt and concrete by a backhoe.  There is no netting protecting pedestrians who pass by the truck.  In the range of unsafe work practices, this one seems pretty high.
Because this is occuring right at the Barclays Center entrance, Miley Cyrus's staff is standing by watching.   Fans are already gathering in the vicinity.  Is the contractor not a Miley Cyrus fan? 
The construction alert says Con Ed will be working in this location this weekend.  The workers do not appear to be Con Ed, and the truck is not labeled Con Ed.

According to one of the fellows wearing a construction vest, the work is test boring.  They do not work for Con Ed.
