    The area between the toll booth and parking lot has now been cleared of trees too.

    All I can think of when I see the "road closed" sign and the removal of the welcome sign...

    I was on the property last week and noticed some heavy construction going on right in front of the DVC tower. Anyone know what that's all about? Gondola tower?

    I'm not exactly sure what intersection it is. All I can remember is the 20'-30' tall tower that advertises the Disney Vacation Club.

    That is an interesting operation going on there. They are extending the box culverts so they can widen the road. Looks like the have the canal temporarily damped and using pumps to transfer the water from one side to the other.

    It's familiar, but I can't place where it is at. I am sure someone else will know.

    That's the corner of Bonnet Creek Parkway and Buena Vista Drive. It's all part of the BVD corridor widening project.

    It's a continuation of the bus only lanes coming from Springs heading toward Caribbean Beach.

    Not sure the pumps are moving water from one side to the other, they could just be keeping the worksite dry

    They are, intakes are at the end of each of those pumps, outputs are on the side. In the foreground the outputs route through the interior of the box drain to the far side. The far side you see that they've got some infiltration issues that they are removing water from the nearside cofferdam.

    When I said one side to the other, yes i know they are moving water from one side of the coffer dam to the other.

    I meant they are NOT moving water from one side of the street to the other

    I think they are moving it to the other side of the road. The intakes are marked in blue and it looks the like pipe marked in red is going through the box culvert under the road.

    Sad to report that the Flik billboard has been taken down - I was suspicious it might happen. Wonder if they might move it elsewhere on property? The Mission: SPACE billboard was removed as well. Not sure when it happened, but it had to have been some time this past week, since danlb_2000 posted the photos on Monday. RIP Flik. I guess "It's Tough to Be a Bug" on a Disney construction site. :(

    They are. There is an identical set-up on the other side.
