From the latest Construction Update: backfilling of retaining wall, water main work, Con Ed work

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning today and released today by Empire State Development at 5:01 pm (late) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, there's a lot of infrastructure work going on.

Backfilling of the Pacific Street Retaining Wall is expected to begin during this period:
This work will be performed from the sidewalk/parking lane on the north side of Pacific Street near Carlton Avenue. Parking will be closed off in this area during the work. The work will be coordinated with the utility work being performed on Pacific Street in order to minimize parking impacts. The sidewalk on the south side of the street will remain open to pedestrians.
Also, water main installation activities will start on Pacific Street this Wednesday between Sixth and Carlton avenues, and could be noisy, as explained in a previous notice.

Con Edison will be working on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues, mainly behind the construction fence, but may need to access areas outside the fence as needed to establish services for B11 and B14.

As stated in the past five construction updates, demolition at Block 1120 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 (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.
