You leave town for a while and things just pop up all over the place. The BNSF (train track) bridge abutment wall bases have been poured and the re-bar for the next level now reaches above the height of passing trains.

The Elliott Avenue crossing abutment has also reached up to clear tall vehicles, like this school bus heading south. And the cement walls at the NW corner of the upper lot have been formed and poured.

The garage level of the pavilion is rapidly taking shape. The walls are stretching up and out a the crews efficiently prepare the forms, fill them (using an amazing praying mantis-like articulated cement pump truck), and peel the forms away as fast as the cement properly sets.

Re-bar has sprung up along concrete footings and flourescent pink paint shows the way for more forthcoming walls. More and more support columns are ready to bare a load, and the underground structure is beginning to look like a place you'll want to park your car next summer.

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.
