Truck this morning on Dean.
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.

I have been forwarded the attached photo and this description by a resident of Newswalk who is happy to speak to anyone interested:
"an ambulance was stuck in traffic with engine running for about 5 minutes. Siren was going off."
The following report was received from Patti Hagan:
No driver, construction truck left to idle at the bus stop.
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.
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.
It is not just local businesses that are having to park on the sidewalk right now. Barlays Center removed "unneeded" items from the arena using the Sugar Factory as an exit. A truck was illegally parked on the sidewalk in order to make the job easier.
