Oh yes! Can't wait to see it happen! Those Earthcam cameras better not be touched tomorrow... They lately have been switching the feed to the memorial camera almost every day...

The huge "rib" pieces that have been arriving in the past two weeks. They'll be attached to both adjacent abutments, starting with the smallest pieces.

Anyone heard the term "invert slab"? There's a big one on this project located just below the Subway No. 1 box, rebar for this slab is being placed.

Otie, when you say that upper portal installation starts 'tomorrow morning', does this mean Monday morning or Tuesday morning?

I have just seen the first piece installed by the east side, on the Street View camera on Earthcam.

Otie,

is there an erection aid for installing these portals? Like a bolted splice plate?

Or do they have to position and then weld each portal?

Bolted splice plates, two per side of each portal frame.

From The Jacko5:

"is there an erection aid for installing these portals?"

Yes, it's called a viagra rig.

Ha! I kill me!
