Hallamore Crane service has their Terex lattice boom track crane ready to lift the head connection to the top of the new Chelsea Creek, Boston eastern lift bridge tower. 

This is a sophisticated construction operation - traffic on the waterway and over the existing Basqule bridge remain uninterrupted as the new - longer, wider, and higher elevating bridge is constructed.  Survey for this job has to be precise - the bolts have to go into the holes. 

It will be interesting to explore the cost of this new bridge versus the cost of the 3 Stooges renovation of the  West 3rd Street bridge over the Cuyahoga in Cleveland, Ohio.  

More soon....
