Car HONKING

Location: 
Dean between 6th & Carlton - 560 Dean Street
When: 
April 12, 2016 - 10:30am

Dean Street, between Carlton & Vanderbilt Avenue, has been closed to my knowledge since yesterday morning and is still closed today. This has created a parking lot on Dean Street between 6th & Carlton Avenues. The honking outside my door has been going on since early this morning. I have a home office in my living room - this situation is both unpleasant and distracting. I am rather exhausted by this development and construction completely taking over our neighborhood.

More on late night truck noise on Dean and Pacific

Location: 
Dean and Pacific
When:

Here is a report from the same resident who forwarded the information that formed the catalyst for the closed/resolved AYW incident report #http://www.atlanticyardswatch.net/node/1798.

Dean Street jammed with cars; Noise from traffic increased by wall; Carlton Avenue closed without notice

Location: 
Dean Street and Carlton Avenue
When: 
November 16, 2015 - 8:00pm

Carlton Avenue was closed without notice last night and as a result Dean Street was turned into a traffic jam.  It is now a regular occurrence that Dean Street from Carlton to Vanderbilt is jammed.  
 
At some points in the week the movement across Vanderbilt Avenue on Dean Street is failed as an intersection because cars take minutes to get through the intersection.
 

Late night construction truck noise

Location: 
Dean Street from 6th Avenue to Carlton Avenue
When: 
November 12, 2015 - 1:00am

Forwarded to me by email (and posted to AYW with permission) from a resident with windows facing south to Dean Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues.
"Last night, like many nights (every night?), I was kept awake by many loud construction vehicles roaring down DEAN street from 1 am onwards.  I notified 311 via mobile app, which did not have a category that suited this complaint, btw.  I chose the closest thing I could find.  PD response was (explitive), as expected.  Here is the reference for you, for what it is worth."

Bay Crane delivery truck idles in bus stop on Vanderbilt Avenue

Location: 
Vanderbilt in bus stop on southwest side of Vanderbilt/Dean intersection
When: 
August 29, 2015 - 11:30am

Bay Crane truck parked in the bus stop on the southwest side of the Vanderbilt/Dean intersection in front of 556 Vanderbilt idles for more than 3 minutes.  It was still idling when I arrived and idling when I left.  Residences are feet away.

Greenland/FCRC fail to disclose 5 am start time of installation of 10 murals; bike lanes blocked Thursday the 13th

Location: 
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
When: 
August 15, 2015 - 5:00am

Greenland/FCRC Partners failed to give notice to the residents on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues that installation of the Pacific Park Arts murals would start at 5 am, and that the use of hydraulic lifts during that time could be noisy.  The community notice disseminated is attached.  It says simply that the street would be closed for the day.  Because the notice was thin in detail, on Tuesday preceding the event I asked a FCRC representative for any additional information they could provide.

Concrete delivery blocks Dean/Vanderbilt intersection; information about work couldn't be more limited

Location: 
In and around the Dean/Vanderbilt intersection
When: 
August 13, 2015 - 3:30pm

A large delivery of concrete was made to the 550 Vanderbilt site using an entrance to the site in the Dean/Vanderbilt intersection rather than the Pacific Street entrance.  To use the entrance the trucks had to be backed through the gate, requiring the closure of the Vanderbilt/Dean intersection with the use of flaggers.  A concrete truck was also witnessed entering the Pacific Street entrance from Vanderbilt via the north bound traffic lane.
