From the latest Construction Update: lots of late work, including overnight sewer and LIRR work

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update, covering the two weeks beginning yesterday and released yesterday by Empire State Development at 4:03 pm (late) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, there will be a lot of late shift, Saturday, and overnight work.

Notably, overnight sewer installation should occur at the intersection of Flatbush & Dean Street for the B2 modular tower, aka 461 Dean Street. A community notice will be distributed before the specified times. The Tower Crane for B2 may be dismantled during over the weekend of June 3.

Demolition at Block 1120--the buildings on Atlantic Avenue below the railyard, between Sixth and Carlton avenues--may begin, with new fencing (aka MPT) installed and new equipment installed.

Demolition of the LIRR tunnel wall at the West Portal (Atlantic Avenue) area may resume during this reporting period. Below grade demolition of the LIRR tunnel will be completed on weekends. In coordination with LIRR, the work will be continuous from Friday night through Sunday morning each weekend.

Saturday work is also expected at B2, at the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Dean Street, as well as other sites, including B3 (38 Sixth Avenue), B11 (550 Vanderbilt Avenue), B12 (615 Dean Street), and B14 (535 Carlton Avenue).

Weekend electrical utility work will continue at the LIRR rail yard.

Outside B3, jumping of the tower crane will occur in these two weeks. DOT permits will be filed.
