From the latest Construction Alert: new street lights outside 38 Sixth; overnight deliveries coming to railyard

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning November 6, was circulated at 11:36 am yesterday (late) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, there's a modest amount of new work compared to the previous period.

Outside B3, aka 38 Sixth Avenue, work to install a traffic control device (a new traffic light?) and street lights will begin.

At the Vanderbilt Yard, "delivery of Tunnel Double Slip Switch Panels will occur during this reporting period. The Panels will arrive at the site during an overnight period (oversized loads) and stored on Pacific Street. Switches will be lowered into the yard via a crane stationed on Atlantic Avenue during normal hours the following day."

No date has been announced. Nor was any disruptiveness described, but overnight deliveries can be loud.

Saturday and after-hours work

Saturday work could occur at the B12 site (615 Dean). Then again, pretty much nothing has been happening at B12.

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 37 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 within this two-week reporting period.
