Needless late night construction

Intersection of Flatbush, 4th Ave, and Atlantic
October 5, 2011 - 10:30pm

As has been happening for months now, work on the intersection of Flatbush, 4th Avenue, and Atlantic resumed at around 10:30pm. I don't know how long this has been the case, but I noticed for the first time that all of the construction activity was taking place within an area that is cordoned off with orange cones and netting 24 hours a day. For your reference, I'm attaching a picture of the site taken from my apartment this afternoon (October 6, 2011)showing the roped off area.

Since this area is closed to traffic at all times, it is unclear why the work must be done at night. The area sits completely cut off and empty during the day, making the decision to conduct extremely loud and disruptive work at night questionable at best.

The nature of the threat posed by the incident or impact.
