Beginning Monday, work 24/7 at the arena elevator system and roof/facade

Starting Monday, work at the Barclays Center site will go 24/7, according to a Construction Alert issued today at about 5:40 pm by Empire State Development, after preparation by developer Forest City Ratner.

The three-shift work involves elevator system electrical work, as well as work on the facade and roof. A crane will be operating, as well as "task lighting."

Three-shift work is expensive, and often a sign of crunch time, so it's a little questionable for this supplemental alert to use the soothingly routine header that appears on the bi-weekly Construction Alert: "Construction at the Arena Site Progresses as Scheduled."
