World Trade Center 1 Spire Arrives at Port
Several articles last week covered the shipment of the spire for World Trade Center 1 from Valleyfield, Quebec to Port Newark in New Jersey, but none I found mentioned its arrival.

A Port Authority news release last week said, “The vessel left Valleyfield, Quebec, on November 16 and is expected to arrive early next week at Port Newark. The sections of the spire, ranging in weight from approximately five tons to more than 67 tons, will then be readied for transfer to Lower Manhattan. The remaining smaller pieces, which will travel from Canada via truck, are expected to arrive in mid-December.”

You can track the spire on-line. The site shows the ship has dropped off the spire in New Jersey and is on its way back to Canada. Keep an eye on the live camera to see how construction is progressing. The spire will support antennas for TV and radio. See WTC Tower Seeks Radio, TV Signals for details. The Durst Organization is managing the tower.

Actually the Antenna arrived by barge under tow by Atlantic Salvor from Valleyfield, QC, Canada on November 26 in Newark. The folks at Valport (the crew that loaded and affixed the cargo to the barge for safe transport are very proud to have been part of 1WTC project.
