March 03 - AM

From above

higer res
2007 series
2008 series

Go Big or Go Home


Trump rising




Ready to make more


I count 7 beams for secants left.


And only a few more slurry wall sections.


Looks like the clamshell days are over






A few more mementos of the past.


The part of the bike path we hoped the bridge would replace.


Bike path crosses ramp.


Ready for paint

There should be a 'superholes' section for projects that haven't made it above ground yet. This and the NYC Freedom Tower projects certainly would qualify for 'superhole' status
