ESD has looked into the incident and it was determined that this truck was not associated with the Atlantic Yards project.  We thank you for your correspondence and hope this information has been helpful.

While ESD is most likely correct about the truck not being assoicated with Atlantic Yards, it is also likely the person reporting this incident was pointing out an impact of having a 16-foot construction fence extend into the middle of Dean Street. That impact legitimately would be associated with the Atlantic Yards project.
