Looks like the structure shape above the entrance could funnel snow and ice dangerously onto people below. Does this look like a problem?

I don't know when. What I can tell is that they've got to hang all these platforms -or commonly known as dancing platforms- between the north and south arches before even inspection of mounting supports begins. Snow is definitely holding back progress, it's dangerous to work under such slippery conditions.

Every single glass pane's angle with respect to x/y coordinates is slightly different than that of the adjacent one. Rate of change is increased as you approach to the abutments.

They've laid a tarp over the entrance; anyone know why?

Snow and ice predicted for Monday and Tuesday. They need to attach all of those platforms before moving to smoke purge fan installation within the 'holes' at the center-most arch segments; then glass modules will follow.

So they're keeping the trees?

I remember you saying they scrapped them.

They eliminated the planters, that model displays the trees in the wrong position. Those boxy planters containing the trees should be granite seats, and trees should be positioned at the stepped terraces between the benches and T3.
