From the latest Atlantic Yards Construction Alert: site excavation at B2, work at the railyard and adjacent

Empire State Development, the state agency overseeing Atlantic Yards, yesterday sent out the two-week Construction Alert dated Monday, Feb. 18, after preparation by developer Forest City Ratner.

There is site excavation at the site of the B2 tower on Dean Street and Flatbush Avenue, involving "the use of 2-3 dump trucks (3 round trips each), 9 loads of material off site." It's not clear whether that's a daily or cumulative total.

An electric meter, and then start-up of HVAC systems is scheduled at the Dean Street Playground Comfort Station, renovated by Forest City as part of the construction impact mitigation requirements.

And there's various work going on at the LIRR Yard, including the removal of parking and trees from the north side of Pacific Street between Sixth and Carlton avenues:
• PT/JV [Posillico Tully/Joing Venture] has removed the boulders and concrete debris in block 1121 and will cut down and level the existing dirt pile accordingly.
• PT/JV will continue work on the drilling of tiebacks on the east end of the south yard. PT/JV will start to mobilize all material needed to install the new MPT on Pacific Street between Carlton and 6th Avenues. The actual implementation of the MPT is currently planned for the week of February 18, 2013.
