From the latest Construction Update: Saturday night shift added to East Portal work

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, Feb. 18, was circulated at 4:40 pm Friday (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There are very few changes from the previous update, given that vertical construction is not quite ready, and most ongoing work is infrastructure or demolition. In fact, the only changes I noticed were not--as is supposedly required--marked in the document.

For example, near the intersection of Vanderbilt Avenue and Atlantic Avenue:
● East Portal construction acceleration will continue during this reporting period and include a night shift between the hours of 3:30pm and 11:59am, Monday through Saturday. Necessary light/dust/noise mitigation measures will be utilized. This night activity can be expected to continue for the next 4 weeks.
Note that previously the night shift was Monday through Friday, not Saturday, and the work was previously said to continue "for the next 4 weeks." (Do they simply not edit?)

● Contractor to remove the existing MG [Motor Generating] Building, located under the 6th Ave Bridge, will begin during this reporting period.
That, actually, was supposed to begin in the previous two-week period.
