That Manitowoc has gotten very little use lately, at least when I'm looking. Wouldn't be surprised to see it go. But they had it down like that briefly a few weeks ago (must have been doing maintenance or changing its length).

More arch segments going in today...

They took out the 40' jib extension that they put in a couple of months ago. I wonder what that's all about, they hardly used the crane at all during that time.

I was at the WFC this afternoon and took this picture.




I also noticed this interesting excavator with an extra "elbow".

Maybe the reconfiguration means that they are going to need it again pretty soon. Without the extension the crane is able to lift heavier loads, correct? Maybe it will have to unload some heavy parts for the roof of the path station, e.g. the middle arches

but why did they add it? I didn't see them do anything that needed the extra reach.

They extended it because 16000 was lifting steel for train paths not so long ago..

That extra "elbow" is there because this excavator can dig beneath itself..If you know what I mean...He's standing on the concrete and dig below that concrete...

The elbow is called a Auxilary stick, its for depth not to dig below its self, that machine weighs 95 tons and after seeing the pit in person, hes not digging underneath himself.

It can only go maybe 20 feet without it because its in the mass excavator configuration

There's a whole lot of activity going on above the PATH station this week. Seems like everytime I look another load of steel has been put together.

That's a mighty big piece of arch (red arrow). I suppose it will attach to the piece of steel being installed now (purple arrow) and the plate girder:

It was good to see that "spine" installed overnight by the "little" Manitowoc.

The "big" Manitowoc has brought in something new. Is it part of the "East Box Girder"?:

Those are 3 of the 5 parts for the first section of the East Box Girder. They will be assembled on the ground then lifted into place onto the temporary supports being built over the PATH tracks.

Excellent. We're finally seeing some real progress over the PATH station. Despite the rain, we're able to get a little clearer view from the HD cam at the moment:



Definitely looks the same as what Zen showed us:

Edit: Will anything, such as utility lines, go inside of the box girder? Seems like a lot of empty space not to be used, unless it will have lots of bracing in the way. Same question for the concrete box beams over the PATH tracks.

Yes, conduits for electrical, pipes, ducts all kinds of stuff. Same with the concrete box beams.

Some questions on the box girder:

It has been placed on the structure which I thought someone said it is just temporary? Or is it a permanent one?

And second, what will be inside the box girder? Or is it kept empty, just in place to support the plaza level above?
