They're just finishing up with blasting and rock removal. Just a bit of drilling and blasting to finish off a few high spots.


Surveyors were out this week marking out plan grid lines.


Crane bits are arriving this morning. The site isn't anywhere near ready for a crane so I'm assuming the pieces are just being stored on site for a while. It does seem to be moving along faster than the press release that referred to a summer start.

Blasting is complete. All the heavy equipment is gone. The blasting company is removing their trailer this morning.


The city appears to be bringing the utilities across from the BMW side.

In the last couple of weeks there was a small crew doing slope stabilization. Today they brought back an excavator and a drilling machine, presumably to do a few blasting touch-ups.

Slope stabilization continues. Crews have been there every day.  Most of the work has been on the rightmost side of the picture above in the area just above the blue man lifter. The blasted rock face is fine but on either side there is looser material.


In a presentation a few weeks ago Mariash mentioned that they had been responsible for the blasting and excavation as a condition of the land sale.
