It's incredible that something as large as "The Left Coast Lifter" can float. It's known as the largest floating crane in the world, it's as long as a 30 story building is tall and can hoist 1900 tons. It's on it's way to New York City and will arrive at the Port of New York and New Jersey this Thursday where it will be moored until the spring when it will head up the Hudson River to aid in the speedier dismantling of the Tappan Zee Bridge and the rebuilding of the new one. It left California after Christmas and entered the locks of the Panama Canal on January 12. Panamanians and tourists from all around came to observe the amazing sight of the barge being lifted about 54 feet above sea level in order to pass through the Miraflores Locks. It will also be amazing to watch its voyage up the Hudson this spring.
