In the picture below you can see that the arch sections circled have a shorter "lip", presumably to fit around the crane tower. Are they going to be left like that or will the missing part be added on later?

The seams seem painted to the crane as well. All of them to the east (?) are still somewhat primed/rusty.

The arch joints in the center part of the arch are bolted, while those closer to the ends are welded. Hence the bare metal, which will be painted over when all the welding is done

Four new rafters just arrived on site 11:16 P.M.

(Click for larger image.)


Installation of rafters (not including welding) should begin soon as three of the temporary bracing bars have already been removed just today.

We can clearly see the removal of central bracing as Otie mentioned on previous page

Yeap and once they are all removed, they can proceed with the installations of the rafters.

Lips for those arch segments were delivered separatly because they were very close to the crane, as you said. they will be welded later.
This was a design request.

All temporary bracing has been removed. Some rafters should be placed today (hopefully).
