2011-10-28 FCR construction flaggers fail to ascertain that public roadway is clear creates very unsafe conditions

Location: 
Pacific St bet Carlton Ave & 6th Ave
When: 
November 10, 2011 - 8:28am

Arena/ rail yard flaggers @ Carlton Ave & Pacific St are required to ascertain that public roadway is clear before releasing arena/rail yard construction vehicles on to public roadways. An oversized arena steel delivery rig is prematurely released and causes a traffic jam causing back up cars to unsafely reverse and honk in front of 171 unit residential building ildling for over 10 mins.

Smoke from arena construction

Location: 
Arena construction on Atlantic across from Atlantic Center
When: 
October 18, 2011 - 7:40am

When walking by the arena block I saw smoke from arena construction along Atlantic Avenue. The attached photo was taken by my cell phone.  It lasted at least for several minutes -- in fact I had to leave before it was finished.

 

Uncovered Dirt Pile

Location: 
Inside arena block; visible from door on Flatbush Avenue
When: 
October 17, 2011 - 9:38pm

A large pile of excavated dirt is visible in the attached photos.  Normally it would be out of public view, however construction workers inadvertently left a door open on Flatbush making the pile visible.  The scale of the pile may not be discernable in the photos but it was very large.  It appears to be associated with the transit work and be near the transit entrance under construction.
