  • What time can construction begin ?

    Anybody been hearing the construction early in the morning that seems to be coming from within the backyards of either 18th or 19th Streets (between 8th & 9th)?

    I noticed it first a couple of weeks ago and thought it would just be a couple of days, but this morning their banging and sawing woke me up at 7AM.

    Hey Vidis,

    "City law limits construction work to between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays, unless contractors get a special "variance" from the DOB. Those variances are only supposed to be issued under certain circumstances, including emergency conditions and concerns for public safety."

      Ugh, wow, I can't believe 7AM is the legal time.
      Thanks Southpaw.

        I am on 30th and 9th and for at least a few nights there has been jackhammering going on past 1:30 in the morning. It's going on now as I type this. However, having had some experience filing a complaint in these matters, I would have to go outside and find where the work is being done before my complaint would be accepted. To simply say where I live and have them lookup where construction is ocurring is not possible -- that's too sophisticated for the city :-(

        Unfortunately, I just can't tell without walking around the area where it's coming from. It's bouncing off the "canyons" near me...could be 2 or 3 blocks away, an avenue away, or more. At some point, I will go on an excursion...
