From the latest Construction Update: a seemingly small expansion of after-hours work

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning tomorrow, Monday, Oct. 28, was circulated yesterday at 5:34 pm (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There's not much new from the previous update,  but a seemingly small expansion of after-hours work.

Notably, the second shift work at the Vanderbilt Yard has expanded. In the previous update, the second shift, previously lasting from 6 pm to 3 am, was extended to 6 am to excavate and install train servicing equipment; in this update, the work has expanded to install yard lighting structures

Also, the contractor continues to relocate any remaining stored materials from the B12 and B13 site to the former 728 Atlantic Avenue building area, but now some work may occur during the second shift, from 6 pm to 9pm.

After-hours work continues

Excavation work is expected to continue on Saturday at the B15 and B4 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. That's "expected to continue for the next several weeks." That could continue for a while.
