Since we only live two blocks from the demolition site, of course we had to go take a look. T, a big fan of large-scale construction and demolition projects, took several pictures. Here are some of them.
See where that crane is? And the big empty space to its left? On Friday morning, that was a roadway.
The same spot, about three hours later. (Note that the sun is out now. The difference between late morning and early afternoon in San Francisco.)
Compare to a photo taken from almost the exact same spot a little less than a year ago, before the Harrison Street offramp was demolished.
As I was pulling these pictures together, I noticed that the distant sound of jackhammers had stopped for the first time since very early Saturday morning. They're back now, intermittently, along with the dumptrucks taking away all the debris. We've been able to hear the noise from the bridge retrofit off and on almost since I started living here, in 2000, and for the most part I'm used to it. Still, headphones can be a blessing.
And now, for something completely different: Lexi climbing the walls!
