Today’s Updates from the New NY Bridge

“Two large barge-mounted cranes that will be used to place permanent piles for the substructure of the New NY Bridge Project will arrive throughout the next two weeks,” a June 14 press release said.  “Upon arrival, crews will start to assemble each crane and moor them until the test pile operations begin in mid-July. The cranes will be moored on the north side of the bridge closer to the Rockland County side of the Hudson River.”

My silent question was answered in the next sentence:

“Neither of these cranes is the Left Coast Lifter, which is set to arrive late this year.”


“Work will also begin next week on the New York State Thruway Authority’s Rockland bulkhead area located on River Road in South Nyack. Work includes clearing of the site and construction of a larger bulkhead that will be used for staging of equipment.”

I’d like to know what you think.
