FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" MARCH 25, 2015

Spring is in the air. In this particular case, that's not necessarily good news. We're at Cochrane's North Yard March 24th as the blue flags are placed for this massive lifting operation. These modular homes built by Guildcrest in Quebec (20 pieces in all) are being lifted off of truck trailers and placed on 100300 series 52 foot flats by White Crane of Timmins. The loads are then secured, inspected, and shipped to Moosonee via 419. Once arriving in Moosonee, the modular homes will then be placed on more trailers and shipped to Attawapiskat via the annual winter ice road. As daytime temperatures continue to rise as spring begins to unfold, you can definitely understand the pressure these guys are under in order to get these homes to Attawapiskat.
