First Steel Girder Began Placement On Hudson Today

The first of many steel girders which arrived here from the Port of Coeymans on Sunday, will be put in place today by the I Lift NY supercrane, one of the largest cranes in the world. At around 11 a.m. this morning, the crane lifted the 400′ long, 12′ tall structural girder weighing up to 1,100 tons, off the Hudson and began the laborious, and calculated efforts to place it across a foundation pier with construction crew waiting on the pier to prepare and assemble the structure. According to the official New NY Bridge Twitter account, this piece will connect foundation piers 5 & 6 on the eastbound side of the bridge. The girder is one of 134 units to arrive from upstate New York where they are being assembled by Tappan Zee Constructors. For up to the minute updates on the progress of the girder placement, follow them on twitter at NewNYBridge.
