Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

At last minute, late-night work announced at B14 site through Friday; up to 20 trucks pouring concrete

At 6:42 pm last night--already after the 6 pm end time for standard construction hours--the Pacific Park Brooklyn Community Liaison Office sent a Community Notice:
Late night work (5) nights between Monday, July 27, 2015 and Friday, July 31, 2015
Temporary Late Night Work at B14 - 535 Carlton Avenue Site [at Carlton Avenue and Dean Street]

Please be advised that during the week of July 27 - July 31, 2015 contractors will be working until 9:00 pm.

Pursuant to their permit, contractors will be doing concrete pours and installing vapor barriers as part of the foundation work. The pours are expected to involve up to 20 concrete trucks, all of which will access the site via the Pacific Street gates. Truck staging will take place within the project site and/or along Pacific Street between Vanderbilt and Carlton Avenues.
Note that, while surely they had plans for this late night work, it was not announced in the most recent two-week Construction Update, issued just a week earlier, on July 20. (The Update did say that Saturday work would begin.)

Also note that the Community Notice came directly from the developer, Greenland Forest City Partners, not Empire State Development, the state agency that is supposed to oversee the project and which issues the Construction Updates (which are first prepared by the developer).
