    Rollers? Why aren't they using sprayers? It would be much faster.

    I think it is because they need to use oil based (alkyd) primer and enamel top coat : spraying woul put too VOCs ( volatile organic compounds) into the air. The entire structure - or at least discreet isolated sections - would have to be enclosed into a containment tent: very expensive and time consuming for an already over budget, and behind schedule project.

    That's true, and besides, the station opening isn't only waiting for the painting to be completed.

    The hub looks absolutely amazing now without the fence blocking the view.

    Finally a terminal worthy of connecting to New Jersey.
