Bridge on a Barge
Posted by Tom Klemens on July 14, 2010 at 12:19 PM.

New York’s new Willis Avenue Bridge is on the way to its planned August installation across the Harlem River connecting Harlem to the Bronx. The fully assembled 2,400-ton, 350-ft steel span is being barged down the Hudson River from the Port of Coeymans, near Albany, and will replace the 109-year-old original structure.
