From AY Watch: construction vehicles on Sixth Avenue sidewalk force pedestrians into street; no one takes charge to diminish hazardous conditions

Those traversing Sixth Avenue at about 3 pm yesterday adjacent to the Barclays Center site had to contend with some hazardous conditions, as documented on Atlantic Yards Watch. There was no passageway on the west side of the street, as a construction fence extends to the sidewalk.

On the east side of the street, a dump truck was parked on the sidewalk, forcing pedestrians walking north, including women pushing baby carriages, into an area of the street set off from traffic by construction cones, then cutting past a parked earth mover. No one directed pedestrians.

Later, as seen in the first video below, some pedestrians were forced outside the cones by parked cars, apparently from construction workers. And, as seen in the second video, some pedestrians walking south along the east side of the street found themselves on a precarious path in between the construction fencing and the traffic.
