New: late work at the railyard through this week

Atlantic Yards Report

At 5:40 pm today, I received an announcement from the Empire State Development Corporation:

This is a Supplemental Report to the previously issued two week look-ahead regarding upcoming construction activities at Atlantic Yards covering the period of August 1 – August 14, 2011

The following section has been modified to include new information:

Yard
New Information: work related to the installation of low head room mini piles within the car shop on the north east end of the yard. Work is preparatory work related to the structural support for the car shop roof which is located below Atlantic Avenue. The work will be done fully within the confines of the yard and will be monitored by both the LIRR and The McKissack Group. Work will take place during the hours of 3 P.M. to 11:00 P.M. commencing Tuesday, August 9th and continuing through this reporting period.

In other words, it began before it was announced.
