Tall columns for grade on south side of Convention Center pedestrian bridge crossing. Picture was taken from where Convention Center station will straddle Desert Inn Road

Columns going up quickly in center of Paradise Road south of Convention Center Station. Construction moving along quickly here to minimize disruption to Paradise Road traffic.

Column rebar for parking lot of Chamber of Commerce. How many parking spaces do you think would be lost if this was grade level light rail?

At the beam yard, the first of several straddle bents is ready. This 7' high, 100' wide beam will support track as it transitions to center of Paradise Road. Insert image shows where beams will be attached to bent.
