Construction trucks on Bergen Street

Location: 
Bergen Street from Vanderbilt to at least 6th Avenue
When: 
May 16, 2012 - 5:13pm

Trucks parked and then moving. One driver explained it is difficult to get to his destination (southbound 4th Avenue) from the LIRR construction ramp onto Atlantic Avenue without using residential streets. He professed not knowing that he is supposed to use Pacific St westbound from Vanderbilt Avenue, rather than using a residential street.

Railyard lights and construction may extend to 24 hours through June

ESDC and FCRC have issued a supplemental construction alert giving notice that work in Vanderbilt railyard will be extended to 24 hours a day for some periods through June.  Work already takes place in the railyard from 6 AM to 3 AM.  The notice states that working hours are being expanded to help speed up the reconstruction of the Carlton Avenue Bridge.  Work to reconstruct the bridge began in December 2010, nearly 3 years after it was closed for reconstruction.
 
According to the notice, plumbing work scheduled over the next few weeks and located in the section of the railyard between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues cannot be executed while other work is taking place there.  It is described as "quiet work" that will be localized and intermittent.  The work will be lit either by the LIRR yard's permanent lights (only those lights in the vicinity of the work), or by portable lights.
 
The hours the lights will be used will be expanded again when the "cutover" of LIRR operations from the southern tracks to the northern tracks takes place. Around the clock work will occur immediately before and during the cutover, which will take place over the course of two weekends in mid-June.    Moving LIRR operations to the northern tracks is the next step in the construction of the railyard.  The southern half now has to be lowered 27 feet to be at the same height as the recently excavated northern half.

Recent and pervasive graffiti on buildings and construction fences

Location: 
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
When: 
May 11, 2012 - 2:11pm

Dean Street between Vanderbilt and Carlton has been hit with two waves of graffiti in the last two months, most recently last week.  The graffiti ranges from tags to messages.  Not only is it on my home, but on many of the non-residential buildings on the block.  It is also sprayed on the construction fences on the project side of the street.
