From the latest Construction Alert: get ready for more loud noises at night, surface parking lot demolition, and Atlantic Avenue median work

Atlantic Yards Report

The latest two-week Atlantic Yards Construction Alert, dated 6/4/12 (and embedded below) and released today by Empire State Development after preparation by Forest City Ratner, continues to warn of loud banging noises by dump trucks from 3:30 pm – 1 am as they empty their loads of stone in the east yard between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues.

These truckload deliveries of stone, which were expected to last ten days in May, instead are expected to continue through June 15th.

Also, work on the surface parking lot now requires demolition of underground concrete structures by hoe ram and will continue intermittently over the next week or so.

Also, work on Atlantic Avenues medians is scheduled to start the week of June 11. While the work will be done during daytime hours, some traffic signal and street light conduit work may occur during the nighttime hours.

NoLandGrab: We're sure there's a perfectly ridiculous reason why they can't empty loads of stone between 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. rather than between 3:30 p.m. and 1 a.m., or why they can't double the number of trucks in order to deliver twice as much stone between 3:30 p.m. and 8:15 p.m., so we're all ears.
