I wonder if the Queen's Marque developers will be pouring concrete this year?
I saw what looked like a roll of rebar, so I'd say the concrete will start soon.

Great update picture kph06. Does this mean that most of the excavation is complete?

I'm glad they decided to open the bridge 24/7.

Comparing kph06 and Jonovision's pictures, I wonder if the footings are for a permanent seawall, and the site will be excavated to a greater depth to the west side of the site?

The estimated completion date is 2019, and those estimates tend to be optimistic. I wouldn't be surprised if there were multiple stages to the site prep and excavation work.
