Construction Gallery - Las Vegas,
Sept. 22-25, 2002 photographs by Kim Pedersen.
Here we can see the first emergency walkway has been installed between dual guideway.
Here's the emergency walkway from below.
The crossover switch uses technology very similar to that of Jacksonville's monorail, yet features the slender M-VI beamways.
The same switch platform, as viewed from the Sahara parking lot structure. To the left is the Sahara Station.
While we visited, pieces were being lifted into place quickly. Note how far the Sahara Station is cantilevered over Paradise Road.
There's more! Sept 22-25 page 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
