It's been a long time coming.Hell, I think I remember there being a planned stadium over the west side yards if the olympic bid had gone through.

The project i was working on just used the same technology to build an elevated metro line through Tyson's corner with minimal disruption to traffic. Check out the video below to see how the segmental erection process works in real life (skip about 30 seconds forward to where the timelapse starts, the first part was just to show the guys on the job)
