LIRR weekend pile-drilling work announced; Dean Street block closed this weekend for utility work

There will be Long Island Rail Road pile-drilling work this weekend, according to an announcement from the developer, though no indication was made regarding the level of noise. (This weekend work was not specified in the most recent Construction Update.)

Also, Con Edison will be doing electrical work this weekend, thus closing Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues during daytime hours Saturday and Sunday.

This also was not specified in the Construction Update, which typically covers only work done at the behest of developer Greenland Forest City Partners. However, community complaints at the last public meeting led the developer to pledge to try to alert residents to such project-related work.

A message from Pacific Park Brooklyn:
As part of the Pacific Park Brooklyn construction, contractors will be drilling piles below grade in the LIRR yard near 6th Avenue between Atlantic Avenue & Pacific Street from 7AM - 7PM on Saturday, April 23, 2016 and Sunday, April 24, 2016.
Additionally, in an effort to better improve communication we will make every attempt to notify the community of upcoming ConEd work when information is provided to us prior to the work.
ConEd will be installing electrical vaults for 535 Carlton Avenue (B14) & 550 Vanderbilt Avenue (B11). To accommodate this work, one block of Dean Street between Carlton & Vanderbilt Avenues will be temporarily closed to through traffic on Saturday April 23rd 8:00AM - 6:00PM and Sunday, April 24th 9:00AM - 6:00PM.
