Brilliant observation! There's a whole set of pictures taking up half of the last page showing the glacial hole and the work being done to fill it prior to construction. You and the New York Times finally caught up to this forum, congratulations!

Oh, c'mon a little redundancy isn't so bad, is it? Is a bit of redundancy so bad? I don't think a little redundancy is so bad. Redundancy is not that bad.

I noticed that too. I'd read elsewhere that they aren't supposed to take down the ramp until December. But maybe they're gonna start on it much sooner and just finish taking it down in December.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the owners of ground zero and the agency building the hub, is expected to announce another re-design of the project this week along with new cost estimates that put the price tag at around $3 billion, more than $500 million over its original budget.

They're simplifying the Hub design by adding columns as was speculated.

Looks like they are building a platform for another crane by the Tower 2 site.

Port Authority shocker: Trade Center making progress
Report due Thursday to conclude Silverstein can finish on schedule.


October 1, 2008

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey is slated to announce Thursday that it will meet all its obligations to lay the groundwork that will allow Larry Silverstein to complete the three towers he is developing at World Trade Center site by 2012 as scheduled, sources say.

Thursday’s report, these say sources, will be nowhere near as bleak as imagined last June.

One source attributes the new, more optimistic view of progress at Ground Zero to design and engineering changes made in recent weeks. Currently, the Port Authority's Freedom Tower, like Mr. Silverstein’s buildings, are due to be finished by 2012.

That scratch on the rock from the Glacier proves once and for all there is global warming.
