Massive Crane Takes Charge to Clearing Baltimore Bridge Debris



The biggest crane on the East Coast of the US stood tall at Baltimore’s port on Friday, gearing up to start cleaning up the mess of Baltimore Bridge from the Franci. It’s a tough duty to cleaning mess in the water.

Although, it’s a big loss but crews pay their high duties in the Friday afternoon, they were still checking out the damage. The massive crane, capable of lifting up to 1,000 tons, rolled in late Thursday and is set to begin pulling debris from the water come Saturday morning, as per Carmen Carver, spokesperson for the U.S. Coast Guard. Further, he told that a second crane is en-route and expected to arrive soon to assist the effort.

The state and federal folks are all about getting the port back on track and fixing up the bridge. This huge container ship called the Dali lost power and crashed into a support column on Tuesday morning. That wrecked the bridge, and sadly, six workers are thought to have lost their lives.

The biggest operational crane on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard towered over Baltimore's port on Friday, ready to begin clearing the wreckage of the Francis Scott Key Bridge days after a cargo ship crashed into it.

So, divers found two bodies of the construction workers who were fixing up the Baltimore bridge when the ship crashed into it. The other four are still missing and likely stuck underwater. Turns out, all of them were immigrants from Mexico and Central America.

Just hours after Moore asked for quick cash help, the U.S. government came through with a cool $60 million for Maryland. They’re using it to clean up the mess and kickstart bridge repairs ASAP. Shows how important this bridge is for shipping and transportation along the East Coast.


Recommendation Safety like Baltimore bridge

I reckon boosting speeding fines would be real helpful, said Michael DiMaggio. Honestly, I think the fine could be even bigger, but it’s a start in the right direction.

Ryan Papariello, who works on safety, suggested another idea to keep highway workers safe. He’s talking about plans that keep workers on foot away from big vehicles in work zones.
