Moving the roof sections from Cambridge

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

In the lot behind the Yangtze, a crane lifts up the roof sections by a chain attached to the rebar hooks built into the roof sections

Roof sections are put on the crane bed and on a trailer, ready to move to Somerset Street arch site

The crane backs out of the precast concrete site onto Cambridge Street.

Crane truck drives under the arch to the unloading site, on the Bronson side of the arch

The crane boom is extended, and chains attached to the roof sections.

Roof section lifted up.

Roof section descends over its temporary wooden cradle built on Somerset Street.

Work crews scramble to position it carefully on the cradle so it cannot tip over.

Workers ensure the cradle is doing its job and will hold the roof section securely until it is put up onto the arch, possibly as soon as this Thursday.
