Well, yeah, they're a bit behind...That's why they workin' on Sundays and probably longer in the nights...But progress is expected to slow down now through fall and winter..But nothing too bad..I think as soon as spring and warm weather starts, they'll make things right and fast...

Fulton Street is and has always been a one-way street (westward), so it'll be the same when they extend it across the WTC site. Vesey Street (north of 1WTC) will also be a one-way street, going eastward. Greenwich Street (which cuts directly through the middle of the site) is also a one-way street, going southward, and Church Street is a one-way street going northward.

I imagine there will be a traffic light at the intersection of Greenwich and Fulton, but I dunno about Fulton and West Street.

According to the original construction timetable from the October 2008 PA report, the cladding was to be begin in the third quarter of this year. The entire podium glass was to be finished by second quarter of 2011. Obviously that's not going to happen.

At least the steel is still rising. I'll take more height over glass.

Eh, you never know. I say it's still POSSIBLE to have all of the podium glass installed by the end of Q2 2011. The steel and concrete have both been rising at a rate of about a floor a week, and even the fireproofing seems to be following that trend. If the glass can also be installed at a floor a week, and considering the fact that there's really only the equivalent of 8 mechanical floors, they should be able to knock out the majority of the podium glass in just 8 weeks. Of course, that would still leave the area around the lobby and 2nd floor (80 feet, or equivalent of 6 floors), which can't begin until they complete the damn blast wall, but as long as they finish the blast wall by the end of April 2011 (and have the glass around the 8 mechanical floors installed by then), that should leave them enough time to install the 6 floors of glass over the blast walls by the end of the 2nd quarter.

Even if they miss this target, they'll almost certainly have it done by the 10th anniversary at least. And even if the blast wall prevents them from meeting THAT target, then I'm sure they'll at least have the glass prisms installed on the mechanical floors.

They haven't, glass is just on site.

Is it just me, or have the partially filled the North Pool with water? There can't have been that much rain today, surely... Looks to be a foot deep, from the EarthCam.

It does look like several inches of water has accumulated. Looks like the waterproofing is working fine.

Supposedly, they were going to do test runs on the north fountain.

Though it would be awesome if the cladding started by the end of this month, is that likely?

When you fall into a pit, you did not watch your step.....
But, off-topic: are you New Yorkers ready for the marathon this weekend?? I wish I could be there! On-topic: what a beautiful render from the helicopter view.
