August 27, 2005: A summary from East Bay to Meeting Street

Looking up the Grace - US 17 on ramp - almost all removed

From Sparky

The Hanover overpass on Saturday - our surgeons are making great progress toward the Pearman approach

Pre-op preparations of the Nassau St Overpass - soon to go

On Sunday, the Nassau overpass is mostly girders now (from Sparky)

Looking east - most of the US-17 approach from the Grace off-ramp is gone and a bit more work remains to get to East Bay

Looking east from Meeting Street - with the Ravenel Bridge in the background

Now that the Meeting Street overpass is gone, our surgeons are working their way backwards along US 17 toward the East Bay exit.

From Sparky - another view of the Hanover St Overpass (from Sparky)

Exit 221B from I26 - most of the rubble cleared - and you can see the the skeleton of the Pearman branch off the I26 ramp (on the left)

The new Meeting Street - looking north
