2015-08-14 NO community notice natural gas infrastructure for 461 Dean sidewalk closed no flaggers, idling for hours
NO community notice for 24 days of natural gas infrastructure construction for 461 Dean St with total sidewalk closures with no flaggers, dump truck idling for hours, vehicles including tractor block NYFD egress by parking tractor in fire lane on NE corner of Dean & 6th Ave. Posted no current information on project permits number etc. I asked for site supervisor & was told there is no one. The additional congestion is created because NationalGrid placed their construction materials on the SE corner of Pacific St & 6th Ave & now 670 Pacific St has no area to temporary unload trucks.

https://youtu.be/RhTi1hfQN7k  sidewalk closed & posted sign directed peds to use other side EXCEPT there is NO SIDEWALK on the west side of 6th Ave between Dean & Pacific because it is walled off & closed & used by B3 construction activities. & again when construction worker noticed I was videotaping he tried to help woman with baby pram.
