Oddly, this is listed in red in the document, indicating new activity, but the phrasing "will continue" suggests it's ongoing. But it was not listed in the previous Construction Update.
Outside B3, 38 Sixth Avenue, rRemaining sidewalk construction should be completed with the removal of the sidewalk shed/overhead protection.
Work on the railyard
Drilling of foundation piles in the area of B7 will continue, and drilling of foundation piles in the B10 area is expected to be completed.
|Tentative timetable annotated as of October 2016|
As in previous weeks, Saturday work could occur at B11 (550 Vanderbilt), B12 (615 Dean), and B14 (535 Carlton), including open space at the two nearly-finished buildings, B11 and B14. Then again, pretty much nothing has been happening at B12. No weekend work is predicted at the arena block.
In the railyard, weekday foundation pile installation in the area of the B5 site 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 27 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.
