I don't know exactly what, but they demolished a building in the port area today.

If im not mistaken the building was the Moinho Marilu, that is gonna be replaced for a modern building, part of the Port revitalization. Actually tomorrow is a very important day for the Olympic Port Project, about 80 projects are gonna be revealed. Some related to the olympics.

O Globo newspapaer has announced that the detonations for the construction of the Line 4 (actually an extension of Line 1) of the subaway from Ipanema to Gávea will start today.

Here is a link to the article in Portuguese: http://oglobo.globo.com/rio/mat/2011/07/19/explosoes-para-ampliacao-do-metro-comecam-na-quinta-feira-em-ipanema-para-ligar-linha-1-ate-4-924943374.asp

There is a video and a chart with more info on the article.

It is not yet confirmed, but apparently the works of line 4 will be conducted in several parallel fronts:

- 1 for each of the 6 new stations (Jardim Oceânico (In Progress), São Conrado(In progress), Gávea, Antero de Quental, Jardim de Alá and Nossa Senhora da Paz).

- 1 for a new platform in General Osório station (In Progress).

- Excavation from Barra to São Conrado (In progress)

- Excavation from São Conrado to Gávea.

- Excavation from Ipanema to Gávea (last front to start due to the need of ordering a TBM).

In Skyscrapercity forums, people are posting pics and info about the building of the BRTs systems. Rio is really advanced on it, specially for Transoeste BRT, the one that will link Subway Line 4 to Transolympic BRT and Farest districts of West zone.

I'm really hopefull about these systems :) :) :)
