Progress, especially visible progress (the kind photographers love) is really picking up!

The upper lot, at the corner of Western and Broad, is being reinforced with steel and timber as the excavation seems to be continuing. Just north of Broad a large cement pad has been poured - what appears to be one of the early permanent structural components.

At the north end of the upper lot the contouring continues, even as more infrastructure is staged for this phase. On the Elliott side of the lot the retaining wall continues to grow along the section of the park that will cross over the street.

The lower lot is also going through major contouring, but it's still hard to tell what is permanent and what will get pushed around even more. This will become more clear as the hundreds of feet of pipe stradling a mound of dirt is deployed.

The west side of the lower lot is being cut in and reinforced with rock, a sign that more truck traffic and materials are forthcoming.

More information about the project is available here.

One neighbor's unoffical journal of construction progress made at the Olympic Sculpture Park. As seen over, and through, the fences.
