From Atlantic Yards Watch: in the early morning, construction vehicles make intrusive noise; goal is to reduce noise "to extent feasible"
One example, not mentioned aloud but posted on the web, appeared on Atlantic Yards Watch early that morning. As noted:
Whether from deliveries, or from construction work itself, the back-up alarm for construction vehicles are getting triggered early in the morning on block 1129 and Pacific Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt. The back-up alarm cuts right through good quality double paned windows.As hinted, there's a gulf between "feasible" and "impact on neighbors." As the video suggests, even with double-paned windows closed, the beeps are noisy:
There is no notice in the construction alerts of work occurring outside of normal construction hours in this location. A recent supplemental construction alert gives notice of after hours work at Atlantic and 6th.
A video can be found here shot through a closed window:
The Memorandum of Environmental Commitments [here] states FCRC will comply with the following measures in the construction of the Project:
- Scheduling work that would generate high noise levels during weekday daytime hours to extent feasible, rather than during weekday nighttime or weekend hours, unless required as a result of safety or other agency requirements;
- To the extent feasible, scheduling equipment and material deliveries during weekday daytime hours, rather than during weekday nighttime or weekend hours.
