Notice for 700 Block of Dover St.

Ongoing construction work will require the 700 block of Dover St. to be closed on Wednesday, Sept 9, Thursday, Sept. 10th and Monday, Sept. 13th. The developer is aware of garbage pickup on Wednesdays and will try to accommodate trash removal. Residents who live on the corner of Fremont and Dover will still be able to access the parking lot behind their houses, but they must enter and exit from Fremont Ave. instead of Dover. The developer apologizes for the inconvenience.

Construction crane

The construction crane blocking Dover St. yesterday was not part of the 725 Pratt St. project. It evidently was there to repair roof damage on 730-734 Dover St., not related to the Zahlco development. Notifications concerning 725 Pratt St. will continue to be posted on this site.

Accident on Dover and Penn St.

Last night, a contractor working on the Pratt St. project foolishly thought he could maneuver our narrow neighborhood streets with his trailer full of lumber. Needless to say, it did not end well. He was not authorized to pick up the materials at that hour, nor was he authorized to go the wrong way down our one way streets. This is an excerpt from the project manager’s email to the subcontractors, after the accident:

"1. Under no circumstances should anyone be working on site before 7am or after 7pm. This is something we have all discussed before. If a contractor is found to have been working outside of the hours of 7am-7pm. There will be repercussions. 2. Do not go the wrong way down one way streets (e.g. Dover Street, Penn Street). This is common sense. It is dangerous. It is impolite. It is illegal.  Do not do it. I can not stress this enough. We are building in a residential neighborhood. Our neighbors have been very patient with us and we need to respect that."
