From the latest Construction Alert: generator installation in railyard means parking lane on Sixth Avenue may be temporarily blocked

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Alert (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning tomorrow, Feb. 26, was circulated at 4:50 pm Friday (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There's not much new compared to the previous update, except for this announcement regarding work at the Vanderbilt Yard between Sixth and Carlton avenues:
Generator Installation will take place during this reporting period in Block 1120 near 6th Avenue. Parking lane on 6th Avenue may be temporarily blocked during the operation to protect pedestrians and vehicles in the area.
Note that the alert repeats a message from two weeks ago: National Grid is anticipated to start project-related infrastructure relocation work near the intersection of Vanderbilt and Atlantic avenues.

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 45 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.
