Due in New York - The Left Coast Lifter

The Left Coast Lifter - a Shanghai-built giant crane - fresh from finishing up the new San Francisco Bay Bridge is due in New York on Thursday where it will help to dismantle the old Tappan Zee and build the new span across the North (Hudson) River.  It displaces 6,750-tons and can lift 1,900 tons according to the Times report on its voyage through the Panama Canal.
