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

From the latest Construction Update: no changes as of last week, but will March-April targets be met? (yes, I'm late on this)

Oops, I missed this one.

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, March 16, was circulated Friday 3/13/20 at 12:09 pm (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

It contains no changes from the previous update, but does offer some target dates we should keep in mind, given that coronavirus concerns, which have not suspended construction in New York City, may affect aspects of it.

Notably, regarding work at the revamped Vanderbilt Yard, "Final site demobilization is expected to be accomplished by the end of March-early April 2020."

Also, it states that, at the railyard, "Weekend and night work continue and will include electrical punch-list closeout, train toilet servicing maintenance and repairs, cart-path construction along Track 1, site demobilization, and track restoration work. All weekend and night work are expected to be completed by the end of March."

Given that the next update should be issued at the end of this week, or on Monday March 30, we'll know then if these target dates will stretch. We'll also know whether work at the two construction sites (B4 and B15) might change.
