The spire that will cap off One World Trade Center is on its way to Manhattan.

A barge carrying the largest sections set sail from Vallyfield, Quebec last Friday. It's expected to arrive at Port Newark early next week.

From there, the pieces, ranging in weight from 5 to 67 tons, will be readied for transfer to Lower Manhattan.

Smaller pieces will be trucked to the city in mid-December.

The 408-foot spire will eventually top off One World Trade Center at 1,776 feet, making it the tallest building in the western hemisphere. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
