Well, steel erection will begin below ground, but it will reach out of the ground gradually. I have no clue how long the steel columns are, maybe some longer ones reach out of the ground pretty soon.. at least I hope steel is above ground in 2012

It's already been redesigned a few times, like just about everything else currently on the plate at the WTC.

I think this is what's going on. Others will correct me if wrong...

There was a temporary bridge over the east-west connector for the southbound lanes. (There is still a temporary bridge for the northbound lanes). Those lanes have been temporarily shifted west. The bridge was removed, and dirt filled in (since the concrete connector tunnel is complete). Next they will pave over the dirt, then they will probably shift the northbound lanes temporarily west to the newly-paved area. Finally, they will remove the remaining bridge, fill in dirt, pave it, and shift all lanes back to their original positions.

The KPI TV site's second 2 WFC cam shows this area quite well. You can look back at the archives to see the progress.

Archs pieces come and go at the site, and I have no idea where they actually go.

On january 24 (after the snow), two pieces were delivered. The next morning, there's only one left. The day after that, they're both gone.

On the night of january 31, a bigger piece was delivered on Fulton Street. It's been sitting on a weird spot ever since.

Finally, today, another piece was delivered, but this time on Greenwich Street.

So, I'm really not familiar with the interior design of the Hub on the east side, but at this point I'm pretty sure there's going to be arches. Now, where did the delivered pieces go? And why are they still delivering pieces on Fulton Street? I was pretty sure they were done with that stuff on that side of the road.

The best I can figure is they are going under (and near?) the southwest (and maybe northwest) portion of the box girder. The west edge of the girder is quite thin, and maybe the arches swoop down towards the floor at the ends (at least at the south end). I'm too lazy to dig up the renders (especially that fly-through video rendering) that have been posted way back. Not sure anything gives us a good view of those areas.

Earthcam camera 5 shows a piece of the trans-hub roof arch sitting on the roadway today, 7 days after your post swiddle. I still can't see where it will go.

Perhaps here (red), under the box girder (blue):

Granted, some of the recent pieces seem mighty large to fit under the box girder. Also, I wonder where they are taking them in at? For the south end, it looks like it would have to be at the northeast corner of the pavilion, but I don't think the tower crane reaches that far, and I've seen no big mobile cranes in that area.

Activity on site this morning, February 15, 2012

As of 8:30 this morning, there are FIVE concrete pumps working simultaneously: Tower 2, the Hub, Tower 3, in front of the Museum, and the VSC. I may be a naive newbie, but never saw that before, and I find it impressive.

They're removing the last of the temporary wall supports this morning, and a couple more steel columns are up:
