From the latest Atlantic Yards Construction Alert: new crane means one-day closing of Dean Street next to site; loading dock access via Sixth Avenue

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards Construction Alert, dated October 28 and distributed yesterday by Empire State Development after preparation by developer Forest City Ratner, Dean Street--apparently between Flatbush and Sixth avenues, but not specified--will be closed from 9 am to 9 pm on one day during this period to allow the erection of the tower crane and removal of the crawler crane.

According to Wikipedia, a crawler is crane mounted on an undercarriage with a set of tracks (also called crawlers), while a tower crane is fixed to the ground on a concrete slab. Note that the previous Construction Alert described the upcoming installation of the tower crane but not the removal of the crawler crane.

Also, there will be some railyard activity after a hiatus, involving SOE (support of excavation) work.
