The spire that will sit atop the WTC is on the way

The spire that will sit atop the 1 World Trade building which will give it it's iconic 1,776 feet in height is on the way by barge, being delivered in eighteen sections. The Associated Press picks up the story:

Eight of the sections are being transported via barge 1,500 nautical miles south from Canada on the Atlantic Salvor. It left Quebec on Nov. 16 and is expected next week at Port Newark in New Jersey.

When the time comes for the sections to be installed it will take about three months to complete. The spire itself will stand 408 feet in the air from the top of the WTC.
