The V-shaped items being loaded on barges next to the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge the week of Sept. 13, 2010, were girders for a bridge in Rhode Island.
Boston-based Sterling Equipment was using Atlantic Diving & Marine’s Eagle Island yard to transfer the girders from trucks to barges for the next leg of their trip north. The first 120 girders, weighing up to 110 tons each, are expected to depart on their sea journey the same week.
Mike McCarley of Atlantic Diving & Marine said the barges are expected to return in about three weeks for a second load of girders.
