2011-10-28 FCR construction flaggers fail to ascertain that public roadway is clear creates very unsafe conditions

Location: 
Pacific St bet Carlton Ave & 6th Ave
When: 
November 10, 2011 - 8:28am

Arena/ rail yard flaggers @ Carlton Ave & Pacific St are required to ascertain that public roadway is clear before releasing arena/rail yard construction vehicles on to public roadways. An oversized arena steel delivery rig is prematurely released and causes a traffic jam causing back up cars to unsafely reverse and honk in front of 171 unit residential building ildling for over 10 mins.

The steel was so wide blocking the public roadway @ 00:38 a cyclist’s concerned for their safety quickly moves and rides on the sidewalk creating another unsafe condition for pedestrians (unintentional consequence) to avoid any type of collision with the oversized arena steel delivery rig.
