Apparently undisclosed construction LIRR staging and idling in the early morning and without noise attenuation -- B12 lot

Location: 
B12 site
When: 
March 17, 2018 - 1:10am

Last night and early this morning LIRR used the B12 site as construction staging and trucks appeared to be using the site to wait.  The construction alert states the LIRR work taking place this weekend late at night "will be done inside the yard."
 
The link to the four minute video here (higher quality video available on request) shows a truck idling for the duration, and the entire lot being used for construction staging.  It is filmed at 1 am.  https://youtu.be/vmIUpxx0v9A
 
As far as I can tell there was no notice in the relevant construction alerts for the B12 site being used for construction staging -- never mind in the early morning.  There is no noise attenuation facing Dean Street for the B12 lot.  It is only separated from the street by a chain link fence.  The idling is filmed lasting more than 3 minutes (MEC requirement N.d.vii, also NYC law).  The MEC also states FCRC (who are they in relation to the project?) will maintain sufficient staff to patrol the Project site regularly to check for non-compliance of idling and/or queing, (MEC N7.i), limit all unnecessary idling, and enforce idling limits, (MEC, N.f).
 
Specifically, what resources (and from whom), does the state have to research the information in this report?
 
Why hasn't the MTA, despite repeated requests, been brought to a public meeting (Quality of Life meeting, AYCDC board meeting), by ESD execs in years?
