From the latest Construction Update: track work coming this weekend at railyard

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning today, January 29, was circulated at 10:57 am today (late) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There's not much new compared to the previous update, but there will be weekend track work in the Vanderbilt Yard over the coming weekend, Feb. 3-4. No scope, hours, or noise levels were indicated.

Sidewalk on Dean coming

Outside the B12 site, west of 550 Vanderbilt along Dean Street, the document states, "The 16 foot fence has been removed. Work related to grading the site will continue. Sidewalk replacement will occur when permits are received."

Street paving outside 38 Sixth

Outside 38 Sixth Avenue (B3), street paving work "is expected to commence subject to weather," though it was supposed to commence six weeks ago. (Did they just not update the document?)

Weekend work

Weekend electrical utility installations are expected to continue in the rail yard and in the tunnel. No times were cited.

The demolition that hasn't happened

As stated in the past 43 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.
