From the latest Construction Update: weekend work at railyard; utility work at two tower sites

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, April 20, was circulated yesterday at 5:26 pm (lead time, sort of) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

That sure represents lead time compared to the previous update, which was released on 4/8/20, seemingly two-and-half days late, given the 4/6/20 date--but actually they skipped a week.

Work at the railyard

And while it seems to offer lead time, it cites site remediation work on Track 3 in Block 1121, the eastern railyard block, which will be done during the day and night shifts on this weekend and next. In other words, it should've been in the previous update.

While weekend and night work will continue at the railyard--including electrical punch-list closeout, train toilet servicing maintenance and repairs, site demobilization, and track restoration work--the document, unlike its predecessor, no longer says that such work is expected to be completed by the end of April. In other words, things take longer.

Work at two tower sites

And while the previous update indicated no construction activity at the B4 (18 Sixth) and B15 (37 Sixth, 662-664 Pacific) sites, which had been shutting down in the interest of caution, there will be minor underground utilities work at both, along with site access and protection enhancements.

(Or maybe it was already going on, just not mentioned?)

Also, at the B15 site, there will be limited activity to modify the existing construction fence and overhead protection.
