New development on the upper lot. As the grade continues to rise, and push up the hill at the north end, this broad-shovel backhoe has started trenching the western perimeter.

Meanwhile, on the lower lot, the dirt mounded on plastic sheeting has been liberated. The 'dozer spread it out over much of the lot, uniting it with the lighter (drier) dirt beneath it. The plastic is still there.

Soon after it was spread out, a guy in a cool hat - I'm guessing he's a soil engineer - wandered around and took several soil samples from different areas.

If you're interested, you should check out the Engineering Design Report (April 2004) and learn about the rather stringent environmental clean-up procedures that must be met. You'll find a link to the pdf for chapters 1-7 on this page.

Learn about the Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park. Check back now and again for an update, and share this link with anyone who might be interested.
