Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + project FAQ (pinned post)

From the latest Construction Update: at B4 site, concrete work Saturday, Sept. 7, from 7 am - 7 pm

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, Sept. 2 was circulated on 8/28/19 (lead time!) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There are few contrasts from the previous update, with two examples of announced new work (typically in red) in the document. 

At B4 (18 Sixth Ave.), pending the receipt of permits, concrete work is scheduled for Saturday, September 7 from approximately 7 am through 7 pm. (There's no mention of noise levels, or the amount of equipment needed.) Otherwise, excavation work there, as noted below, is supposed to go from 9 am through 5 pm.

After hours work

In terms of continuing after-hours work, at the Vanderbilt Yard, "Contractor plans to work second shift to excavate and install necessary TMSC (train toilet servicing cleanouts) between 6 pm and 3 am," according to the notice.

Excavation work is expected to continue on Saturday at the B15 (664 Pacific Street) and B4 (18 Sixth Ave.) sites from 9 am through 5 pm, through the end of the year.

Saturday daytime electrical utility installations, site restoration, and work that requires LIRR track outages are expected to continue in the railyard.

At the railyard, the LIRR may be utilizing portions of the yard lighting for security reasons. While previously that was "expected to continue through August," now it's "expected to continue for the next several weeks."
