Late night work on 535 Carlton with late notice; cement truck down Carlton Avenue

535 Carlton and Carlton Avenue generally
July 27, 2015 - 7:58pm

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.  
I checked the construction update distributed last week and there is no notice of the late night work.  The State has not given notice.  That is surprising since Pacific Park's (late) notice warns of late night work all week.  Such a meaningful amount of late night work ought to be included in a State construction update.
Here's the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5Yxa6qo5Eg
Just after filming this, a cement truck came to the site via Carlton Avenue. The video camera in my phone stopped working unfortunately, so I was unable to capture it.  The truck came down Carlton (not sure from what point, but certainly at least as far south as Bergen, maybe further south), and drove directly into the site.  I asked if this had been happening all day.  The construction worker manning the entrance said that it was happening because the Carlton/Pacific intersection gate was the only one open.  The gate at Pacific and Vanderbilt was closed. I was able to take a still shot of the closed gate on Vanderbilt.  It is attached.   HDR should be able to verify this.  The truck that came down Carlton did so just after 7.  What is the chance someone is logging trucks as they enter the site?

Work apparently continued on until after 10PM.

Priority: -> normal
State: -> New
Client: -> Public

A neighbor reached out to me last night to complain that the work was still continuing after 10 PM.  
I've added complaint numbers for late night work and for a truck driving down an illegal route to the work to this incident report.
