From the latest Construction Alert: curb installation, street repaving, Verizon ducts

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning May 8 and circulated yesterday at 2:07 pm (a bit late) by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, there's not much new work compared to two weeks ago, but the areas around two new buildings should improve.

At B3 (aka 38 Sixth), two actions promised in the last alert--removal of hoist run and hoist run panel installation-are expected to commence.

Outside B11 (aka 550 Vanderbilt), part of Dean Street will be repaved; such repaving work was to begin in the last two weeks. Outside B14 (aka 535 Carlton), installation of a Pacific Street temporary asphalt curb will continue.

Also, Verizon is scheduled to install street ducts in Pacific Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues.

Saturday and after-hours work

As in previous weeks, Saturday work could occur at B3, B11), B12 (615 Dean), and B14. Then again, pretty much nothing has been happening at B12. No weekend work is predicted at B2.

In the railyard, weekday foundation pile installation in the area of the B5 site--east of Sixth Avenue, between Pacific Street and Atlantic Avenue--may extend work hours up to 5:30 pm and may occur on Saturdays.

Also, ongoing testing for the new LIRR substation may extend weekday work hours up to 7 pm and may require work on Saturday and Sunday.

The demolition that hasn't happened

As stated in the past 24 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 permits. A community notice will be distributed. Maybe it's not actually going to happen.
