Depot and more

Last week the base was set for the new Amtrak depot. This week a concrete foundation was formed. On Tuesday the first pour took place.
On Wednesday new forms were put up on the concrete base of Tuesday.
And on Wednesday a second concrete pour took place, this one with two concrete trucks.
Over at Monnett the demolition is complete and the crew is smoothing black dirt that was trucked in. The fence was taken down today.
Meanwhile, behind the Eger substation on Melville a different crew was busy installing a fence. (No picture.) Below you can see work on the other substation that is under construction, the one next to the power plant. A series of trenches have been cut and some kind of wiring will go into them.
