2011-12-02 Barclay’s arena trucks violate the EIS; ESDC & FCR continued failure to control deliveries for arena & rail yard

mid-block Pacific St bet Carlton Ave & 6th Ave
December 2, 2011 - 6:30am

ESDC & FCR continue to allow arena construction & rail yard contractor’s tractor trailers to violate the EIS by failing to schedule, control & contain deliveries to lessen the negative impact on the residential community daily, this was the ESDC’s primary protocol to mitigate the continued and very negative impacts from the arena construction.
These tractor trailer trucks are to have specific operating parameters given in advance per EIS and time and time again drivers have no clue what so ever as where they’re supposed to be. Either the tractor trailer trucks entered Pacific street from Carlton Ave (violates non trucking route) or the official arena flaggers again failed to control & released the trucks prematurely into public residential area with no instructions what so ever as to where to go or when to go there.
Also notice continued arena construction nuisances that negatively impact the quality of life; how many arena construction workers double parked preparing for work in residential neighborhood creating congestion, honking creating very early morning noise to the local residents.
00:15 Drivers exit trucks & do some sightseeing of the rail yard on N side of mid-block Pacific St bet Carlton Ave & 6th Ave
02:15 a construction worker approaches errant drivers and appears to attempt to direct them to the staging area but you will see they later in video that they drive to 718 Atlantic appear to park on Atlantic Ave
04:43 construction worker points to the east; and continues to explain/give directions
10:23 3rd tractor trailer pulls away
10:53 the 3 tractor trailer trucks drive to 718 Atlantic appear to park on Atlantic Ave
