A 900-ton crane extends above downtown Fargo's skyline on Tuesday, Dec. 4, at the Block 9 tower construction site.

It's said to be the largest mobile crane in the upper Midwest.

A 200-ton mobile crane was used to assemble the 900-ton mobile crane, which will be used to erect one of two tower cranes at the site. The first tower crane will be used to help assemble the second tower crane.
