Manhattan Community Board 1, the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center and residents of John Street met last night to address the issue of round-the-clock noise coming from five simultaneous construction projects on the one-block stretch of John StreetBetween Broadway And Nassau Street, DNAinfo reported.

The residents voiced particular complaints regarding the Department of Buildings handing out special construction permits, which allow contractors to work into the night and on the weekends. According to DNAinfo, typical hours begin at 7 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. every Monday through Friday.

Some of the projects include the construction of a new Pace University dorm, which is slated to be done by year’s end, the renovation of the Corbin Building, to be completed in late fall, and the installation of new gas pipes and water mains, whose work DNAinfo reported could finish in the next few weeks.

An official from the DOB agreed to review the permits for late-night work. In addition, officials from the Department of Environmental Protection said they would brainstorm noise-reduction efforts with contractors. [DNAinfo]
