From the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Alert: Atlantic Avenue sidewalk near Barclays Center closed to accommodate drilling

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn Construction Update, covering this week and next and issued yesterday by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, work continues on the two towers on the southeast portion of the site, and testing is needed to assess whether compressors used at the Vanderbilt Yard need additional noise mitigation.

Also, the south sidewalk on Atlantic Avenue between the Barclays Center and Sixth Avenue will be closed during daytime work hours to accommodate drilling on Sixth Avenue, and the pedestrian crossing at Atlantic and Sixth is now on the east side of the intersection.

(Here's the previous alert.)

From the document:
LIRR Yard Activities - Block 1120 & 1121• Within the yard, drilling of SOE [support of excavation] soldier piles along the mid-block of Block 1120 will continue during this reporting period. Compressors located on the 6th Avenue bridge will be utilized for this SOE drilling. Once the compressors are operational, the OEM will perform testing per the project noise protocols. If the results of the testing demonstrate the need for additional noise mitigation measures, these will be developed and implemented by the contractor.
