It looks like pre-cast concrete decking, but it’s too small.

Any thoughts on what is going on here. I have not seen this truck before.

It's a sewer vacuum truck. Not sure what it's there for - perhaps they are connecting to the main sewer line and needed it clear. Or something happened in the construction process that needed a vac truck.

They are using it for excavation. Vac trucks excavate without causing damage to underground utilities or other structures using pressurized water and the vacuum.

Can you tell me about the green tubing that is being placed in the picture?

Yeah, looks to be primarily epoxy coated rebar.

It's hard to tell from that photo if there is any post-tensioned cabling in those areas, but if you're seeing something that looks like tubing, it's possible that's what you're seeing.

It is coated cable for a post-tensioned concrete deck.
