That first one is showing up as an Alaskan Way Viaduct rebuild for me.

@1, clear your cache, restart your browser.

This pisses me off, because if I'd known about it I would have been there on the rail, watching. Look at that thing go! Too cool!

As it's floating away, it reminds me of the first star destroyer in the beginning of Star Wars.

@2: It apparently cleared up on its own. Weird, though, not like I spend a lot of time poking around on WSDOT's videos.

Not to be too much of a nitpicking engineering geek, but they're not floating slabs of concrete. They're hollow boxes.

And the width of the canal was indeed one of the primary controlling design criteria.
