From the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Alert: continued night work May 26-June 1 at Atlantic/Sixth

Beyond the intriguing admission about interior work in the B2 modular tower, the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update for the two weeks beginning tomorrow, May 25, contains several descriptions of new work planned, notably continued night work Tuesday May 26 through Monday June 1 at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Sixth Avenue.

Unlike in the previous two-week alert, there is no mention of "directional lighting" or equipment like excavators, cranes, and hoe rams, with the installation of portable fences with acoustic blanket linings to help dampen the sound.

Note that, as of February, Forest City Ratner's CEO said no overnight work was planned. That was not exactly reliable.

(The document was issued Friday. Such an early issuance is unusual, given that the updates usually emerge one or after the date.)

The document, using asterisks and red type, distinguishes new work from ongoing work. Among the new work.

• *May 26th through May 29th:
