No progress on abutments today, but that's fine as North side of Oculus is finally structurally complete.

Sorry for the miss understanding. I should have been more clear. I meant the steel installation on the North side is complete.

The structure so far looks amazing! Now that all rafters are up, when are they going to paint it white?

The western most rafter is still on the ground. So no, not all of the rafters are in place yet...

Looks like they removed the hooks of the east crane. And there are a bunch of suspicious looking empty trailers to the west. That crane could be gone soon.

Those pieces do not look too heavy. Crane like this

can easily complete the task being much cheaper in rent.
