It seems like there's a pretty good amount of rust/oxidation around untreated surfaces and near bolts - Probably because it's taking an absurd amount of time to put this thing together.

I wonder why they are concentrating on the west end and not working from both ends? Is that 4 or 5 now on the west? The camera angle makes it impossible to tell.

I presume the cross section of the steel sheets used to construct the members is quite thick. Corrosion is an instantaneous thing, but with members this thick, the corrosion actually forms a protective layer and doesn't mean there is permanent damage. It'll be sandblasted/ground off before being primed and coated, don't worry.

They are actually doing something else with the east crane every time I check on earthcam, so it's not like they forgot it. More so, they are using it for other works on the site.
