What's missing from the Construction Update? The sidewalk used as street

Atlantic Yards Report

After the Department of Transportation approved, as part of Maintenance and Protection of Traffic (MPT), the use of a portion of the Pacific Street sidewalk at the southeast corner with Sixth Avenue as a vehicular passageway, you'd think it would show up in an Atlantic Yards Construction Update.

When the change went into effect last week, it had not been announced via the biweekly update, because, the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) explained, it happened too late for the update and resulted from changes in response to a field condition.

Fair enough. But there's no reason for the latest Construction Update, issued yesterday (bottom), not to mention the revision to the MPT.

But it doesn't.
