From the latest Construction Alert: National Grid work expected at the intersection of Vanderbilt and Atlantic

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning yesterday, Feb. 12, was circulated at 11:27 am yesterday (late) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There's not much new compared to the previous update, but National Grid is anticipated to start project-related infrastructure relocation work near the intersection of Vanderbilt and Atlantic avenues.

Also, previously noted SOE (support of excavation) installation in the northeastern portion of Block 1120 (just west of the Carlton Avenue Bridge) will continue, with the activity of "excavation" added and clarified.

Sidewalk on Dean coming

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

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 44 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.
