Excavations, tera drilling and installation of shotcrete continue as crews work on relocating the ramp from George Street to Route 18 southbound. The Rutgers Marriott Music Building and the old George Street Bridge are in the background.

In Boyd Park, soldier piles and lagging have been installed to create the river-side abutment for the new George Street Bridge.

From Antilles Field above the Route 18 corridor, northbound traffic has been shifted onto the new Commercial Avenue Bridge. This allows the crews to work on the roadway below and prepare the ground for utility structures which are awaiting installation.

Crews smooth the way for the reopening of the ramp from Route 18 northbound to Route 27 northbound into Highland Park. This ramp, which was closed to allow reconstruction and relocation of utilities which run through the area, will reopen in early November 2007.
Looking south from the city-side of the old George Street Bridge, survey crews have staked out the future alignment of the new George Street structure. The concrete wall being demolished was the riverside supporting wall for the old ramp from George Street to Route 18 south.
