Also, punch list work continues at the Carlton Avenue Bridge, and may require night time or weekend work. Similarly, punch list work remains at the north part of the Vanderbil Yard, where the Long Island Rail Road has begun operations.

At the parking lot at the southeast block of the site,, there's still work on the perimeter fence to be finished.
