Cement Truck exits at Dean & Carlton gate

Dean St. & Carlton
May 28, 2015 - 3:32pm

The green fence gate at the corner of Dean & Carlton is being used regularly for cement deliveries, neighbors say, and just happens that I've seen 2 in the last 2 days. Is this exit from the gate onto Carlton part of the new exception as well?

Concrete truck uses Dean St. for delivery to block 1129 - thought I had the video running, but seems like it didn't work out. A neighbor who usually walks Dean St. to take/pick-up her kid at school said she sees this often in the morning. She then alerted me to another incident, filed next.

The following report was received from Patti Hagan:

Two additional street trees damaged as a byproduct of street narrowed by construction fence

Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
January 30, 2015 - 4:00pm

I've attached photos of two additional trees damaged since the construction fence was installed around block 1129. Vehicles need to pull up on the sidewalk in order to load or unload, or if an emergency vehicle needs to pass.  They pull up on top of tree beds as though they are the same as sidewalks.  

Passing vehicle hit by debris from drill at Dean and Carlton

I was passing by this morning and found an understandably upset driver being interviewed by a Roux-uniformed employee with a clipboard on Dean Street.  Her car and the Roux-labeled truck were stopped in the travel lane.
The driver claimed a "clump of dirt" had flown threw the air and hit her side window as she drove by.  The car was passing by the drill rig at the time.  Her side window was shattered.  She noted that if sitting near the window, her child would have been injured.  Photo is attached.
