From the latest Construction Update: Optimum, Verizon, Cablevision work

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday and released today by Empire State Development at 10 am (late) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, there's more infrastructure work going on.

During this period Optimum and Verizon communications will have crews on Pacific Street between Vanderbilt & Carlton Avenues installing infrastructure for B11 (550 Vanderbilt) and B14 (535 Carlton). Work will involve street excavation within the construction fence perimeter.

At the B14 site, 535 Carlton Avenue, new work includes:
• Sidewalk demolition along Dean Street for foundation waterproofing will commence within the construction fence perimeter.
• Cablevision will install telecom conduits along Vanderbilt Avenue within the construction fence perimeter. 
As stated in the past six construction updates, demolition at Block 1120, the railyard block between Sixth and Carlton avenues, could commence upon receipt of Department of Buildings and Department of Transportation. A community notice will be distributed.

After-hours work

Also, there will be late shift, Saturday, and overnight work. Saturday work is expected at B2 (461 Dean Street), at the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Dean Street, and may occur at other sites, including B3 (38 Sixth Avenue), B11, B12 (615 Dean Street), and B14. Second-shift work also may occur at B2, which is the first tower expected to open.

Weekend electrical utility work will continue at the LIRR rail yard, and demolition of the LIRR tunnel should continue on weekends, continuous from Friday night through Sunday morning.
