Wizards Stadium: the first roof truss

The first roof truss went up on the Wizards stadium yesterday. I was able to go up there and get some shots so I wanted to share a few. The rest are in this gallery.

The first roof truss to go up from up on top of the stadium...


Good view from up here, I see the Cauldron end...


Another view...


Long way down. The players seating can be seen on either side of the field entrance. The Wizards are on the right as we look at it....


A pano view from above...


As big as the steel roof trusses are, it is my understanding that they were not the heaviest lift. The concrete seating portion of this corner was the heaviest...


Looking up at the first truss from field side...


The first roof truss from the stage/south/race track end...


Starting to lift truss number 2


Two trusses...


Braces holding the two trusses are being put in place...
