Actually what you're seeing is an already installed temporary road bridge over the southern PATH tunnel portal. It will be removed and replaced with a permanent structure as part of the highway widening.

meh_cd and RKOwens thanks for your information. It will be good that floor of memorials will be located at the same level as the original lobby. Overall the whole site is sacred but the footprints should relate to an RL which existed before, even though history and memories will recall what happened in the now clear sky above.

finally some progress here. if only tower 2 and 3 could catch up! but unfortunately nyc doesn't have the balls to build the whole wtc complex. many people around the world (including me) would expect more! maybe everything is finished when my grandchildren are visiting nyc some day. btw: nice updates and pics! thx for sharing!

indeed. as i see it, the wtc rebuilding has been really productive in the last years. i wish nyc (i really like the city) the best to get its skyline back on top, but for now it's just depressing (even for not american people). again, good luck. now back on topic.

I sure am sick of the 'long project' posts. Can you guys just stay out of the thread for a year so it will seem like good progress to you? Even after reading about all the red tape the posts still keep coming.

I fail to see the reasoning behind being upset at the timing of this project. Do none of you remember how many people died at this site?

And about having balls to build all the WTC site? That was a ridiculous statement. It's got nothing to do with balls or NYC. Financiers, developers, architects, construction companies....now there's a few folks that might have had a hand in the schedule....Jesus people, think before you post!

Wow, the tower is exploding with action. Thanks for the shots! I wonder what the scaffolding is for going up in front of the south core? Is that for the blast wall, or something else? Great progress either way. They finally have the north core level with the south again.

I'm guessing this is the point that we're going to really start seeing it shoot up?
