From the latest Atlantic Yards Construction Alert: delivery of crane could begin today, after delays; sidewalk bridge, structural steel also nudged back
Note that the crawler crane, previously scheduled to be delivered to the B2 site on July 29 and constructed over three days, requiring Dean Street between Flatbush and Sixth avenues to be closed for two days, did not arrive on schedule, "due to delays in getting necessary Transit Authority and Department of Buildings approvals."
Now, the schedule is for the crane to arrive today, tomorrow, or Thursday, requiring closure of Dean Street for one or two days.
Also, a sidewalk bridge at the Dean Street entrance, previously scheduled for installation over three days beginning July 22, has been rescheduled for late August/early September.
Also, unmentioned on the alert, but shown in the photo at right, is drilling (testing?) on the site for the B4 tower at the northeast corner of the arena block.
LIRR Yard Activities Block 1120 & 1121
While the new alert does indicate that work at the railyard has been delayed, the below description comes verbatim from the previous two-week alert:
•Work will commence on Pacific street level within the MPT to prepare the piles to accept the new barrier and fence installation. This work will consist of cutting off piles to proper heights and welding steel supports.
