Looks like may have started pouring concrete on the outer ring. If true, it should go pretty quickly from there.

The outer ring is gravel. But otherwise, yes we may see quick advances now.

From the CRS-12 webcast looks like more work done on the 2nd landing pad.

You know we've come a long way with Earth Imagery when surface details are discussed, not using Google Earth (that is sooo yesterday) but from photos taken from a rocket coming in to land!..
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine - however, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are
going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead.
