Debris has been spread across the closed southbound lanes, possibly to block vehicles. (Photo date: 23-Sept-2007)
The northbound lanes still have the original concrete. Motorists who drove the original Central Expressway may remember its coarse, rough-textured concrete. (Photo date: 23-Sept-2007)

Looking south from Routh. The signal ahead is currently the start/end of the freeway, but it appears the start/end will be shifted north after the construction. The poles are most likely for light rail overhead wires. (Photo date: 23-Sept-2007)
