Work has begun at the Port of Oakland to heighten four massive ship-to-shore cranes. The Port said Monday that the 366-foot giants will be raised 27-feet in a 9-month project. The Port said taller cranes will be better able to reach containers stacked high above decks on modern-day megaships.

The Port said it’s raising the cranes at Oakland International Container Terminal (OICT) in partnership with SSA Marine, the terminal operator. Cost of the project is estimated at about $14 million.
