Night Construction Schedule for Current Week

September5, 2014

There is no drilling, chopping, or excavation work planned for this coming weekend.

We will be forming protection walls this weekend, from Friday at 6 pm to Monday at 4 am at track level below the installed portion of the platform. This work is being performed in coordination with the schedule granted by the railroads. This is not a noisy operation.

This coming week from Monday through Friday, we will continue taking overweight deliveries during late evening/early morning hours and we will continue to make every effort to minimize the impacts of these deliveries.

During regular construction hours on Monday through Friday, from 7 am to 6 pm, hand-drilling will occur in the northwest corner of the site. The work is required by Con Edison and will continue for the next couple of weeks.

Work on widening the stair shaft excavation in the northeast lot continues during normal construction hours. It is expected to continue for the next four to six weeks. This process is required to allow for the placement of an egress stair that must be in place prior to fully covering the Railroad tracks.

Next week, we anticipate a few days of probing and testing on one panel of the façade at 450 W. 33rd St. The panel is located on 33rd Street near Dyer Avenue. The work will take place sometime between Monday and Friday between the hours of 6:00pm and midnight. This is in preparation for the exterior renovation work that will start in mid-October. As we get closer to the start date, we will further describe the activities taking place.

  • Friday, September 5, 2014: 7:00AM to 12 midnight
  • Saturday, September 6, 2014: all day
