Another last-minute notice for night work: three nights in the railyard, 6 pm to 3 am

A second straight (here's the first) last-minute notice of night work came in a message last night from Empire State Development stated that "Night work is expected tonight, Tuesday, May 21 to Thursday, May 23 in the railyard":
LIRR Yard Activities – Night/Weekend Work
● Due to new LIRR Train Service Plan utilizing all 7 tracks in the Yard, Track Extension work must be rescheduled to the night shift and will take place from Tuesday May 21 until Thursday May 23, between 6pm – 3am. Light, Noise, Dust mitigation procedures will be put in place to mitigate impacts of this work.
That, at least, offers a rationale. But overnight work for three nights deserves more of a warning, right?
