From the latest Construction Update: excavation and foundation work at B4 site; restoration starts at Atlantic/Vanderbilt intersection

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, April 29, was circulated at 4:52 pm yesterday (late) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There's not much new from the previous update, but the document does confirm--as previously announced in a press release, not a Construction Update--that excavation and foundation construction work will commence for the B4 tower, aka 18 Sixth Avenue.

Also, at the East Portal of the Vanderbilt Yard, at Atlantic and Vanderbilt avenues, the contractor will begin restoration of the roadway, sidewalk and curb.

A bit confounding

As with some previous documents, the new document is confounding in a few places, such as repeating this line about night/weekend work:
● LIRR may be utilizing portions of the yard lighting near the Atlantic Avenue LIRR Access Ramp and Block 1121 for security reasons. This is expected to continue through March.
Hello, May's coming. Does anyone read this stuff?

Continued weekend work at the railyard

It's not new, but electrical utility installations, "East Portal construction acceleration," and "Drill Track Enclosure Foundation construction acceleration" will continue during Saturday daytime hours
