Slowly but surely, construction crews are making progress on the Woodall Rogers Deck Park in downtown Dallas.
The 5.2-acre deck park connecting downtown to Uptown will be something Dallas has not seen before.
The park's vision can be difficult to conceptualize right now, between the construction equipment, the piles of dirt and concrete and the traffic headaches.
On Saturday, crews will take down retaining walls to make way for vital structures.
Gray said beams that will set the foundation for the park and the underlying 1,500-foot highway tunnel will be delivered and installed in September.
"You're getting to see the bone structure materialize in front of our eyes," Gray said.
The park is scheduled to be finished in January of 2012.
In the meantime, the Woodall Rogers Park Foundation has to raise another $15 million to finish the project.
