From the latest Atlantic Yards Construction Alert: adjustments may be made as pile drilling proceeds; new construction fence for B2

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards Construction Alert, issued (and dated) yesterday by Empire State Development after preparation by developer Forest City Ratner, there may be adjustments coming on pile drilling at the Vanderbilt Yard:
Actual pile drilling along and outside the south wall to the yard started on April 22nd and will continue for the next several months. All mitigation devices are in place and are being monitored hourly and daily with respect to noise and dust. As the process progresses and we gain experience with this new drilling equipment, we will actively seek to tweak and try to improve on mitigation.
Regarding the modular residential tour known as B2:
Site excavation is expected to be completed within this reporting period. Work will result in the use of 5-10 dump trucks (varies per day, 3 round trips each) and up to 15-30 loads of material to be transported off site per day.
A new fence is going up:
During the week of April 29th a construction fence on the east side of the Dean Street entrance to the arena for the purpose of beginning construction of the transfer foundations for B2. Removal of existing paving in this area will also commence.
Work continues on Saturdays, 7 am to 6 pm.
