Work Related Post

Just as a point of interest, I wanted to take a step away from baby related posts for a moment. The Project Manager for the big transit redevelopment project at Denver Union Station that I have been working on for the last 2 1/2 years sent this nice aerial view of the job site. The photo I guess was taken by the contractor.

What we are seeing in this picture is about 1/3 of the new underground bus terminal that has been excavated, the slab and wall poured and the roof structure being erected. The holes in the middle of the facility will be skylights in the passenger concourse below. The rooms at the hammerhead shape of the facility near the top of the picture are all the mechanical and electrical equipment rooms. The larger one to the left, is where the giant exhaust system to remove the bus emissions and the smoke from a fire will be located. Above that in the picture is the new Light Rail Station which will replace the current one near the bottom, where you can see the train cars. That's scheduled to open in the spring.

The contractors are really moving along, it's been a great project for me to work on.
