Muscular West Coast Worker Is on Way to Build New Tappan Zee

PANAMA — The Left Coast Lifter is the Superman of floating cranes.

As long as a 30-story building is tall, it can hoist 1,900 tons in
a single heave
, or as the builders who will deploy the crane to
speed up construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge like to say,
the equivalent of 12 Statues of Liberty.

“Magnifico!” one man shouted as the crane passed through the Pedro Miguel Locks. “Its size — I’ve never seen anything like that.” Mauricio Valenzuela for The New York Times
“If I have done the public any service, it is due to my patient thought.” ― Isaac Newton
