From the latest Construction Update: only new work is backfilling of foundation at B3 site

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Nov. 7 and circulated yesterday at 1:17 pm (late) by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners (GFCP), there's a lot of work going on--but not a lot new.

The only new work announced concerns the B3 site, aka 38 Sixth Avenue, where backfilling of the west foundation will start. That should be very close to the Barclays Center.

During this period, Optimum crews will excavate on Pacific Street between Vanderbilt and Sixth avenues, to install infrastructure. "This work is NOT by GFCP but will be monitored," the update states. The last phase of sewer refurbishment continues on Pacific between Sixth and Vanderbilt, including manhole castings and asphalt patching.

After-hours work

As in previous weeks, there may be late shift, Saturday, and overnight work. Saturday work could occur at B2 (461 Dean), B3, B11 (550 Vanderbilt) , B12 (615 Dean Street), and B14 (535 Carlton Avenue). Second-shift work was not announced for B2, however, as in previous weeks.

Weekend electrical utility work will continue at the LIRR rail yard. Weekday and weekend work in the Yard requires working hours to be extended to approximately 7 pm each evening to prepare for the temporary relocation of the LIRR drill track and the West Portal approach slab construction.

As stated in the past eleven 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.
