Skanska USA Building Inc. announced today that construction teams raised and installed gangways as part of the final phase of construction to prepare the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space museum to open next month. The gangways will transport an estimated one million visitors onto the ship each year and – in addition to utility connections from landside – permanently secure the USS Intrepid in her newly reconstructed berth at Pier 86 in Hudson River Park.
