Yesterday saw the arrival of a new transformer at the Con Ed substation on Avenue A at Fifth Street... the second new one for the facility in the past year.
The crews from Con Ed and Bay Crane worked quickly (and efficiently, TBH) to install the 180,000-pound transformer ahead of Winter Storm Ember, which ultimately brought snow flurries and season-appropriate Instagram posts.

Con Ed has been prepping (oh, have they ever) for months for this moment.
Traffic will likely be stopped along the Avenue between Fourth Street and Sixth Street for part of the transformer liftoff and placement ... here.

As noted, the new transformer is set to arrive for placement the weekend after Thanksgiving.
