From the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Alert: delay in finishing 16-foot fence near 550 Vanderbilt site

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn Construction Update, below, covering this week and next and issued today by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, weather has delayed some work near B11, the condo tower at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue (between Dean and Pacific streets).

(Here's the previous alert.)

Regarding B11, work will continue by National Grid to relocate a gas line in the Dean Street sidewalk between Carlton Avenue and Vanderbilt Avenue that will service this and the adjacent future building.

I've bolded the new information; note that poor proofreading left in the previous statement that the work would be done by January 23:
Because this work conflicts with bracing blocks for the 16 foot fence for the Block 1129 construction, lower fences, varying in height from eight to twelve feet, have initially been installed in front of the work zone. The work zone is approximately 150 feet long and about 125 feet west of Vanderbilt Avenue. It is expected that the full 16 foot fence will be constructed and in place by January 23rd. This work has been delayed due to weather conditions and is currently anticipated to be completed by mid-February. Once completed, the 16’ fence will be installed along Dean Street.
Other new work going on at that building site:
• Excavation and hauling of soil from site. Soil that has been classified as clean, contaminated or hazardous will be removed from the site as part of the excavation activities and brought to appropriate disposal locations. Protocols for the trucks entering and exiting the site have been put in place. These protocols provide instruction on roadway routing to and from the project site, queuing of trucks while on site and vehicle idling restrictions
• Installation of support of excavation (SOE), including pouring of concrete piers and installation lagging will commence during this reporting period.
Regarding B14, the rental tower at 535 Carlton Avenue, beyond continuing excavation and foundation activities, with a support of excavation (SOE) drill rig, the document indicates the following new information:
o Site mobilization will continue, consisting of electrical work to power contractor field office and relocation of light poles to outside of site fence.
