damn. considering that is only a very small portion of the complex, and even this hub itself, it helps put into perspective the tremendous scale of this project and the WTC complex as well.

The piece is 113.2 tons, 45 ft long, 8ft wide, 11 ft high the largest piece on the job. The tonnage was not correct on the 127 I have said, this one is the right dimensions and weight... They are setting it right now.

I have a lot more photos of that piece on my flickr, there are some close ups of it.

I'm confused. The piece on the trailer looks completely different than the two pieces in your flickr photos. It looked like they were about to lift the foreground piece, but what actually ended up being placed looks similar to what's on the trailer, but I'm not sure it's the same.

Those two close up photos posted here are not the beam on the trailer. I said there are close up photos of the big piece on my Flickr.

Thanks for the clarification and posting more (awesome) photos. (I must have read "there are" as "these are".)

From the web cams...

Big piece yesterday (lower left):

Fake out, it looked like they were about to lift this piece this morning:

But instead it was the big one:

And they installed another section of the center spine yesterday or Friday evening. Just one section left (maybe two).

I seem to recall someone reporting that the 18000 will leave this month. If that's still the case, it's really going to have to pick up the pace. Things left that probably only the 18000 can handle:

- Four pieces of the south end of the box girder to make it even with the north end.
- At least two more sections (one north, one south) of the box girder to connect it to the NW and SW super columns.
- Two or three more upper sections of the west-side truss.
- The NE and SE super columns.
- Several more pieces of the east truss, including those that connect to the super columns.
- A couple dozen or so of those beams that run east/west between upper truss.

Anything I missed?

I assume a new tower crane will be erected in place of the 18000.

I can't wait to see the tower crane west of the north pool leave. It looks like only 1 more spine piece and 7 more arches (2 of which are already on site).

It also looks like they're 4 pieces short of finishing the PATH hall.

It's almost unimaginable that those old small beams that make up the box were able to sustain the loads of the heavy equipments.

There was talk of it coming back to lift the "wings" of the hub but haven't had confirmation of it. After this job it will probably be sold as there aren't many, if any jobs around the area for it, the cost just to take it down and transport it is crazy. This crane has rebuilt ground zero.

The 16000 is coming back very soon though to construct the VSC.

16000 is a big rig for that VSC. I assume that means they will be erecting from grade and reaching in.

going to need a lot of stick for that, if it is the case.
