They are just inspecting the cable it's using as required by NYC codes. It will be reinstalled as soon as the inspection is complete.

So any ideas on when they might start the plaza work around the oculus? Seems they haven't done much of anything with that yet.

Does anyone know if this is going to be the final colour?

In Oasis' photo above, the first elements on the right hand side seem to be finished, but they're 'off-white' not quite the gleaming white I was expecting... but maybe the colour was selected to age better, less noticeable dirt, etc.

By naked eye this color looks snow white so far...
At the picture it could be white balance or monitor settings problem

What do you mean - "They also completed the stairs" ?

What are "Stairs" when it comes to road work ?

He should have said steps for the sidewalk area. They are needed since the elevation changes.

Looking at the Lower Manhattan Construction Coordination (LMCC) minutes, the PA is now saying the entrances in T2 and T4 are "TBD". As of July 28th minutes, they were saying 2Q. More delays.....

At the rate they're going, they'll open up at the same time as the PATH.
