NEW YORK (AP) - The giant spire that will top 1 World Trade Center is making its way to Manhattan.

The spire is divided into 18 sections that weigh between 5 tons and more than 67 tons. Eight of the sections are being transported via barge 1,500 nautical miles south from Canada.

The barge is expected to arrive in New Jersey next week. The remaining sections are expected to arrive via truck in mid-December. The Port Authority says it will take about three months to install.
