That sinking feeling

Workers from McNally Construction completed forming and pouring the first crib for the Pier 9C extension yesterday, and today moved the crib into position. It will gradually sink into place this evening as air is expelled from its flotation chambers. Mooring points on shore and on the barges Canadian Argosy and Derrick No.3 will ensure that the crib remains in position while it slowly settles into place.

By early evening the crib was settled on the bottom and the crew packed up for the night.
