Rio de Janeiro’s city hall released aerial images of Olympic construction, with organizers saying the main Olympic Park is 95 percent ready Wednesday.

The Rio Olympic Opening Ceremony is Aug. 5.

The Games will spread across four zones — Barra, Copacabana, Deodoro and Maracanã.

Barra has been called the “heart of the Games” by organizers.
