Well spotted! Guess the basement work in 2WTC is either complete or being completed through the vehicle security center now.

There are at least 4 portals on this side shown under the crane boom. I assume there are 8 total then. The keystone upper portals are not on site from what I can tell.

I believe that they still have 8 to install, and 2 are not on site yet. Count the upper portals from one of the side view pictures.

I rebooted, and the problem seems to be fixed. Thanks for the advice as well.

Here's a better view, taken one hour later.



Workers getting ready to install another transition segement. Also, does anyone know what the small pieces highlighted in the green circle are?
