Once all sub/lower portals are in place, figure a week or two.I believe erection of upper portals will be devided in east and west, beginning with east section. After installation of east upper portals is complete and completely guyed, transition segments with their respective arch segment will follow, a Skanska crane will be taken down and a crawler will come to assist on skylight glass and portal glazing, temporary scaffolding will be erected from the below hall all the way up. After east area is complete, then west will follow with erection of upper portals, transition and arch segments, the remaining Skanska will be taken down and the same crawler will now assist on this area.

Once complete, the same crawler will erect rafters, beginning from shortest to longest.


*Where arch segment reads, it should say "transition segment"

Morning Earthcam meeting: "Hey, I saw that the oculus is coming up on another interesting milestone!" "Yup, time to shut the cameras down, or remove the links, or bump the camera"

Yeah, I'm really getting tired of the same old EarthCam song in the time-lapse views.

WebEagle, that is bad news. But luckily, I saved an image from that camera of me and friends at the Memorial last April. I will forever cherish the image.

If the Earthcams go down we will have to rely on the Rising cam. Hopefully it stays up till the Oculus is completed.

Since they are both being taken off-line and at the same time, my suspicion would be that is being done for security reasons (or somebody thinks it will help security). Sounds like maybe NYPD is flexing their muscles again!

I don't believe so. Rising cams did lasted though, considering the show aired more than a year ago. Maintaining those cams is expensive.

That view does not show the oculus. At least not today.

All earthcams show the (more or less) same shot memorial during daytime (at the moment), from some point in the night until a while after sunrise, they show their distinctive views. This happened for a few days about one month ago, hopefully they readjust them again as they did last time so that we have the different views all day..
