The westbound span of the New NY Bridge is one step closer to coming together - quite literally.  Tappan Zee Constructors recently used the I Lift NY super crane to place an enormous, 95-foot-wide steel section to link the westbound Rockland approach span with the cable-stayed main span.
While the project's I Lift NY super crane continues to raise large sections of structural steel on the main span roadway, four lighter and taller cranes have proved to be the real workhorses on the cable-stayed structure. These red tower cranes are vital to the day-to-day operations on the main span, moving essential materials and equipment with precision.
While all eight of the project's iconic towers have reached their full height at 419 feet above the Hudson River, crews continue to work across the entire main span and its stay cable system. To provide quick and simple access to these sky-high areas, the project team uses a pair of external elevators, attached to the sides of the main span towers. 
The project's largest crane, I Lift NY, went back to work this February to install a critical section of structural steel on the New NY Bridge project.
