It's almost starting to look like a fully functional tunnel.
They're gonna try to make it look traditional.
Here's how the tunnel looks from the other side.
That traditional wall is part of Jongmyo.
When I was looking through the pictures, my first thought on seeing this was "How did I get a picture of myself?"
There's that oldish concrete bridge that used to connect the two sites.
At some point they'll presumably bury all this.
I decided to go visit the scaffolding.
From there I could see out onto Yulgongno where it passes in front of the palace.
The weird smudge in the sky is created by autofill.
I went to look at the bridge closer.
The stairs on the left led into a weird area on the edge of the palace grounds.
This sign is telling me not to go back the way I came.
One more view of the bridge.
Now some construction materials. A rope ladder.
Fun seeing this concrete propped up by wood.
Time to head back.
They've widened the road, I think from four lanes to six. This used to be a big traffic choke point before.
Plus there are sidewalks.
