Construction workers park illegally on Pacific Street and 6th Avenue

There are three sources of illegal parking in the immediate proximity of the project site.  City employees associated with the 78th Precinct, FDNY Ladder Company 105 and HPD regularly park on sidewalks and use illegal placards on 6th Avenue, Dean Street and Bergen Street.  Members of the Temple of Restoration Church regularly double park on Dean Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues throughout the week.

Construction Workers regularly park illegally in no standing zones and sidewalks on Pacific Street between 6th Avenue and Carlton Avenue, on the 6th Avenue Bridge, and intermingled with 78th Precinct employee cars.  The illegal parking at times is three rows wide and during this period has sometimes blocked the marked street.

Collapsing catch basin

A hole has opened up adjacent to a catch basin on Pacific Street. It seems to have been caused by the weight of parked cars in a no parking area. The cars that park in this location are owned by Atlantic Yards construction workers. I filed a 311 complaint, but did not receive a number by email as promised.

Construction barriers limit visibility, lead to accident between bike and SUV

Dean Street and Sixth Avenue
March 28, 2011 - 10:00pm

Reported by Wayne Bailey: This occurred around 10pm tonight 3/28pm. I was not an eye witness this is what the driver told me…. The driver of the SUV said, “I was traveling south on 6th Ave & the delivery cyclist came out of nowhere thru the intersection & hit his SUV & hit me. I couldn’t see him because of the blue wall blocked me from seeing him.” The ambulance took the cyclist to the ER; I have no idea of his condition. Attached are a few pictures….

Visibility is an issue in collision at Atlantic Yards perimeter

At approximately 10:00 PM on Monday, March 28, a delivery cyclist turning the corner at Sixth Avenue and Dean Street was struck by an SUV traveling south on Sixth Avenue. The driver remained at the scene as the cyclist was rushed to a nearby hospital. The driver of the SUV told a local resident at the scene that the blue plywood walls surrounding construction at Atlantic Yards blocked his view and he was not able to see the cyclist until it was too late.
