2012-08-20 NW corner of Carlton & Pacific bridge construction produces dangerous intersection

Location: 
620 Atlantic Ave Carlton Ave @ Pacific St

2012-08-20 NW corner of Carlton & Pacific bridge construction produces dangerous intersection
Continued construction workers parking in No Parking @ NW corner adds to creating a dangerous intersection with the ‘Official Staging Area’ (Pacific St bet Carlton Ave & Vanderbilt) full of equipment & construction supplies & no enforcement of no parking zones creates dangerous intersection both north & south corners that has vehicles driving & parking on the sidewalk, driving wrong way with no flaggers, 18 wheel tractor trailers & other delivery trucks with no place to stage use residential public streets. The Carlton Ave & Pacific St intersection construction has created a pinch point with the loss of 20 feet roadway. One construction delivery truck slammed into the barrier because he didn’t realize that the turning radius was so radically reduced. Pedestrians attempting to cross Pacific near Carlton must maneuver through chaotic traffic. Barclays delivery trucks staging @ this intersection are illegally idling for more than 20~30 minutes next to residential buildings. Delivery trucks stage on Atlantic in NO PARKING ZONE during Flatbush morning rush hour!
