    Just to confirm what others have already guessed: the new arch supports the transit hall. It shares space on the east supercolumns with the bigger truss that supports the 1-Line box, but the one being installed will be visible, so it has the same architectural curves and finish as the rest of the PATH station ribs and etc. The crane will begin to be dismantled soon - I've heard this weekend, but I've found those reports are rarely accurate, we'll see. The new foundation is for the future tower crane. I'm told the flat pieces are for the east box girder - there are still segments to be added to the ends. All of this needs to be welded and that alone will take months. Meanwhile, the superstructure contractor (Sorbara) continues on the 254 level of the Transit Hall working generally east to west.

    No... it's just unloading some more steel. There is still some work to do for 18000

    I vote for 18000 to become a statue there :P

    Correction - the steel plates reinforce the north-south sheer wall in the hub. There is parking on the east side and like everything else on the site where there are vehicles it will have blast protection.

    The crane in front of the WFC seems to be leaving.

    Looks like the 18000 may be leaving!!

    how do they plan on getting it out of the pit?

    seems the best route for exit is Church street.

    it has been working virtually non stop the last few days on the greenwich street supports..

    they laid an awful lot of greenwich street steel that has no logical connection point yet. i'd think it would finish that truss before leaving.

    greenwich street seems a natural area to put a new crawler crane..

    would the 18000 assemble a tower crane that would ultimately assist in breaking down the 18000?

    should be interesting to watch;

    edit: looks like east tower crane is doing the dismantle. Guess it can handle the weight.

    edit 2 - the Tower 2 west crane is assisting in the dismantle.

    Yeah, it looks like 18000 was reconfigured - just the boom and no more jib.
    Apparently there is no more need for far reach, but still more work to do!...

    They probably just need to finish that truss.

    building a tower crane ..

    what is the rectangular piece behind the crane? looks like one of those crane pads like the yellow crane sits on fulton street

    could they be preparing to move it to greenwich street?

    Those are crane mats, I believe those are the ones that the 18000 used to sit on at T1.
