Atlantic Avenue water main installation begins between Carlton and Vanderbilt

The installation of new sewer and water mains on Atlantic Avenue between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues began last night and produced three noise complaints.  Although the work will line some areas of the project's second phase footprint, it is a City project not considered part of Atlantic Yards. 

The work last night involved using an excavator to pound shoring into the ground so that work can take place inside the trench.  That activity can be loud.  This work will continue tonight, as well as Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings next week.  The trench will then be temporarily plated and asphalted and the work will move to another location.

The work is occurring at night because Atlantic Avenue is a major thoroughfare.  The project is expected to be completed next summer.  Daytime work in the same vicinity is Atlantic Yards-related.  Apparently, today jackhammering took place underneath Atlantic Avenue inside the railyard.

The Community Construction Liaison for the water and sewer main work on Atlantic Avenue is Kamala Questel from the New York City Department of Design and Construction.  Her office hours are generally Monday through Friday at 936 Fulton Street.  Her telephone number is (718) 789-1464 and her email is atlanticavenueccl@gmail.com.

Construction Fencing inhibits view for pedestrians at Atlantic and Sixth

Location: 
Atlantic Avenue at Sixth
When: 
October 18, 2011 - 10:57pm

The construction fencing on Atlantic lining the arena block has recently been punched out even further into the travel lanes.  As a result at Atlantic and Sixth Avenues pedestrians headed north across the western crosswalk only have a short view of oncoming traffic headed east.

In watching a number of pedestrians cross the street, they have to lean into the travel lane to see the oncoming traffic.

I've attached photos.  

 

Construction site not secure at night

Location: 
Flatbush Avenue between Dean and Atlantic
When: 
October 17, 2011 - 10:30pm

An entrance to the arena block construction site was left wide open and unguarded last night.  The entrance was roughly at 5th Avenue on the east side of Flatbush.  The entrance was directly off the pedestrian walk-way.

Equipment including heavy machinery was within reach.  Open pits were within reach.  It was clearly an unsafe situation, tempting for kids to be sure.

Dean Street closed to traffic w/o notice

Location: 
Dean Street between 6th and Flatbush
When: 
October 17, 2011 - 9:30pm

Dean Street between Flatbush and 6th was closed to traffic for an extended period October 17th in order to facilitate water and sewer main work.  I have checked the construction alert and I cannot find any reference to Dean Street being closed.
