There were multiple problems on Monday morning. A number were associated with an asphalt/tar job at 535 Carlton. This job was unrelated to the removal of the construction fence around 535 Carlton and could have been scheduled at another time.
A dump truck backed into the entrance on Dean Street for the 535 Carlton Avenue construction site delayed fire response from the Dean Street firestation. The dump truck was backed into the entrance on Dean and blocking the street. The fire truck could not get by.
Here is a video of a large truck with a container manuevering to get into the former satellite parking lot in the B15 footprint: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyDwnFP8USQ
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.
I came home to the attached notice that the water had been shut off in my house (and all buildings) on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt. My ill housemate had come home before me and spent some time trying to figure out what was going on. He was afraid to turn on the heat or water. He had already called 311 without success.
Dean Street jammed with cars; Noise from traffic increased by wall; Carlton Avenue closed without notice
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.

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