With a fleet of approximately 130 floating cranes, barges, tugboats and other vessels working on the New NY Bridge, construction continues to move forward. The coming year will see the completion of the new crossing's foundations and an increasing number of bridge piers across the Hudson River.
On the lengthy roster of world-class industry experts working on the New NY Bridge is Welsbach Electric, a Queens-based company that is one of the largest commercial electrical contractors in New York City. The company's talented team of engineers, electricians and line workers will install the new bridge's power, lighting and fiber optic communication network, helping integrate these and other modern features into the 21st century structure.
