Top sections of the beam of the arch

The beam that forms the backbone of the arch over Somerset Street is built up in several layers, corresponding to the eventual roof heights (there will be nine roofs, spread over three different elevations).

Workers construct rebars to reinforce the top most concrete beam. This section will get its concrete likely this Friday. Several of the lower roof sections will have been lifted into place by then, and the last beam pours will lock all the pieces together into a solid concrete element.

Rebar lifted into place by the crane.

Worker with grinder or saw cuts some rebar so it fits perfectly.
