From the latest Construction Alert: at railyard, weekday double shifts; railyard flood lights on until 11 pm through Carlton Avenue Bridge replacement (next summer!)
Atlantic Yards Report
The latest two-week Atlantic Yards Construction Alert, dated 12/19/11, was distributed today by Empire State Development (after preparation by developer Forest City Ratner).
Notable is that railyard work will proceed on double shifts during the weekdays along with Saturdays and selected Sundays, all in the name of "overall schedule maintenance," aka "staying on time." The previous alert indicated extra work only on weekends.
Also, it seems quite possible that floodlights at the railyard will be illuminate until 11 pm for many months, through next summer, as "Yard Flood Lights will be turned on at 6am and from dusk to 11:00 pm, during double shifts through the completion of the Carlton Avenue Bridge replacement, as needed."
The bridge is supposed to be finished before the arena opens in August 2012, though no firm schedule has been announced.
