They'll probably just leave a big hole or two in the basement floors next to the subway box until the temporary supports are gone, then eventually fill in the holes. There are also all the temp. supports for the box girder and arches. (Plus they will eventually need to demolish the center PATH platforms and surrounding walls and roof. The logistics must be a nightmare.) Someone mentioned (a month or two ago) that there was months worth of welding left to do on the trusses, box girder, arches, etc. So it could be a while yet before the loads are transferred to the permanent supports.

Or may be is this project is by far the most complex in all the ground zero area, with subway line at the top with temporary supports, others lines at the botom, parking and security area integrated in the building, crossing corridors etc... It is the most expensive in comparison but is the most difficult and complex too, so itīs not so easy that answer like that ! I think at least.

The long delayed 2nd Quarterly Report of 2011 is out

http://www.panynj.gov/wtcprogress/pdf/2Q2011_Report.pdf

Hopefully the 3rd one will be published earlier, reading the lookahead for the 3rd quarter in October is a little bit odd..

Seems like they are shifting one lane of Greenwich Street to the newly decked part of the east-west connector.. maybe they remove the temporary bridge(s) there in the near future..

Oh.. sure West Street. PATH should have finished its part by the end of the year.
Does the demolition of the temp. bridges belong to the PATH's work? I do think so. Then they should do this pretty soon, since it was announced that their part is finished by the end of 2011..

I'm curious how the WFC looks on the western side of the east-west connector when Brookfield has finished their renovation works there..

Slightly off-topic: By the end of the month, a Manitowac 16,000 will be fully active at the Vehicle Security Center site.

I think you mixed up something, the 16,000 has already been operational for around two weeks, many huge columns in the western part of the VSC has already been lifted and placed by it.

Someone over at WiredNY said that excavation at the former Deutsche Bank site will proceed at least until Christmas, after that they will start the construction in this part as well. The wall between the two parts of the southern bathtub is almost completely gone already (best view on it provides the KPI TV cam)

If somebody has some spare time, maybe a separate thread for the VSC could be created

Hopefully, they are above ground by then at the entire site and ther is no longer a hole in the ground anymore.

Looks like they removed half of them this week during the evenings. They probably won't remove the rest until after the next floor is poured.

Yellow crane is off its pad. It's about time they finish up that gap in Fulton.

Oh yes that's true, seems like they removed the lower ones.. difficult to spot on the webcam though.

I wonder if they replace the yellow crane by a smaller one soon, which will be placed at the end of the next section of Fulton Street (when this part is brought to grade..)
