Yes, Some Brooklyn Heights Residents are Still Being Tortured by Brooklyn Bridge Construction Noise

NY1 catches up with 140 Cadman Plaza West residents who are still struggling with noise from renovations on the Brooklyn Bridge:

NY1: It’s a nightmare neighboring residents in Brooklyn Heights have had to live with since 2010, when The Brooklyn Bridge Rehabilitation Project started. Most nights, residents say drilling starts after 11 p.m. and lasts until at least 3 a.m., as shown in home videos taken over the years. Those living near the bridge who expected construction to end this past spring call it absolute torture.

A Department of Transportation spokeswoman told us the original completion date for the work was this past April but a new date of next April was set due to additional repairs. In regards to the noise, the spokeswoman said the agency holds monthly meetings with the city Department of Environmental Protection.

    Friends over there are still living through the noise. Closed windows and white noise machines do help, though.
