Route 219 Extension over Cattaraugus Creek south of Springville, NY

The Bing satellite has shadows that show the arch.

It is unusual to see a crane's boom used to reach out instead of up. It takes a lot more counterweight for the same length boom when using a large radius.

It was a crawler, not a ringer.

Gary Swain That was 275' of main boom and 140' of fixed jib. I had a working radius of 425' with full counter weight package of 1.4 million pounds.

We had to move the crane twice, it took ten days , sixty one truck loads and a assist crane on each end . Not to mention a full crew of operators and iron workers to get the job done!
