Thomas Jefferson looks out over the plaza and seawall that lines his memorial, keeping an eye out on the contractors' completing the project. Begun in November of 2009, National Mall and Memorial Parks is repairing the plaza and seawall, which consists of forty-one (41) four-foot (4'-0") diameter drilled shafts and fifty-three (53) eighteen inch (18") battered piles to support a new seawall and the existing north plaza. The historic seawall stone cladding will be restored and reinstalled.
Luckily my walk around the tidal basin revealed better shots of the Jefferson memorial unobstructed by the cranes, which will be shared with you.
