    Here are the pictures from 5-11-10. Its in a very hard spot to take pics, and to make it worse they have the small chain links on the fence which makes it so hard for pics

    The first cut is limited to around 20 feet because 200 tiebacks and shoring whalers have to be installed to support the slurry wall.

    Even the dump trucks have to look good.

    Is the demising wall in this part of the VSC or is it in the Deutsche Bank area?

    It's what separates the two. If Deutsche Bank was down when it was supposed to be there would have been no need for the demising wall.

    Nice job CAT235D. Gettin' it done.

    Yes in fact the other day i dug up a 2ft dia log about 15 ft long that was used as a water pipe, it had wooden taps too, they quicky had me load it onto a small truck and it was taken somewhere to be cleaned and carbon dated.
