ESDC says in a construction update:
• Beginning Monday, June 25, 2007, the northern sidewalk and parking lane of Pacific Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues will be closed. These closures are required to allow for support of excavation activities associated with the LIRR relocation.
• Beginning Monday, June 25, 2007, jersey barriers will be set up as the fencing of the construction area and steel to be used in the SOE will be delivered. Drill rigs will mobilize on the site as well.
