I know this is a bit off topic, but what are they doing in the middle of west street? In between the lanes...it looks like for the past few weeks they've been pushing around dirt and such, I know the east-west connected is underneath that but it seems that isn't what they are worki g on in that area...

Actually, there's still quite a bit more to go. If you look back at the picture, the roof still has to climb to roughly where the tips of the cranes are.

Considering how tall it looks already, I'm sure jaws will drop as we see it keep climbing higher and higher.

New steel has been erected, there just haven't been any good pictures of it on SSC yet. Check out SSP if you want to see for yourself.
