From the latest Construction Update: water service work planned at Flatbush and Dean, and also Carlton Avenue

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday Aug. 1 and released yesterday by Empire State Development at 3:20 pm (late) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, some new water service-related work is planned.

Overnight water service work at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Dean Street may occur, outside B2 (aka 461 Dean Street), the modular apartment tower. A community notice will be distributed. It's not clear what kind of public impact there might be.

Also planned is cutting and capping the existing water main on Carlton Avenue, at the western border of Block 1129, the southeast block of the project, and next to the B14 tower, aka 535 Carlton Avenue.
No impact to local community services is expected (but that doesn't rule it out).

As stated in the four previous two-week construction alerts, demolition at Block 1120--the block of the railyard just east of the Barclays Center--could commence upon receipt of Department of Buildings and Department of Transportation permits. MPT (maintenance and the protection of traffic) could be installed on Atlantic Avenue. 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 (550 Vanderbilt Avenue), B12 (615 Dean Street), and B14 (535 Carlton Avenue). 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.

Other new work planned

At B3, curtain wall delivery and installation will begin.

At B11, building equipment may be lifted to the roof using a hydraulic crane, site work will commence on Dean Street, and the new sidewalk bridge on Vanderbilt (per latest MPT plan) will be completed.

Also outside B11, the height of the giant 16' high fence is being lowered to 8'. Contractors are lowering the fence in 20' segments and the work is expected to be completed by August 5.
