J.F White Contracting comes one step closer to the completion of the new Chelsea Street Bridge with the addition of the East upper leg portion of the South Tower.
Crews worked through the night to extend the crane pad so that an early morning lift was possible.
Once everything was in place the actual lift , of 200 tons of steel, took mere minutes to complete.
The well oiled machine of the collaboration between lead contractor and sub contractors as well as the professional working crews made this job look easy.
See my tribute to the American Ironworker video to see some behind the scenes details.
