Does anyone know what the new ramp on the south side of the temporary PATH station will be used for? A new public entrance?

...two more rafters! 10 pieces now on site, 2 of them already welded on the superstructure...


Ironworker welds at the rafter on the east side of the Oculus.

StavrosG was right. They were moved this morning to the top-left corner. I didn't recognize them because of the protrusion.

Also, the last two large transition segments being installed as we speak!

Both large transition segments simultaneously in place! And the last keystone pieces "waiting" on the left (south) side...

I would guess that they may arrive in more than one piece and would be assembled upon installation.

I hope the rafters will go on quickly now, so the "bird" can take flight.

АмУх, shrink your image by 50% and repost. Too big and blurry to be of any use.

Not trying to get religious here, but I wonder if it's by chance or design that they reached this milestone of rebirth on Easter weekend?
