When should the Path roof be fully demolished?

Will it effect the construction of freedom any?

Self Rising Form Work

Anyone know what kind of self rising formwork will be used for the core? This seems like a situation where they will need the DOKA style that was designed for use with cores where the steel rises ahead of the core.

Yeah, it looks like they just needed the crawler to put up the new crane. Now the crawler can focus again on the real important things.

It's amazing how so much around the WTC is just temporary. Things are constantly installed, then removed, repositioned, etc. It's obviously necessary, but I shudder to think all the man hours expended.

They only shut down one track (eastern most) which is allowing them to remove the roof over that track. They can't remove anymore of the roof unless they shut down the track first, and they obviously can't shut down more than one track at a time. Sooo... I'm guessing they'll have to construct the permanent roof over a particular track, then reopen it, then shut down the next track and remove the roof and construct the permanent one... and so on.
