A team effort: Joe Puliafico, maintenance and operations manager for the Mt. Roberts Tramway, below, gathers a small cable Tuesday from George Roberts, left, and Franz Spichtig, both of Leitner-POMA of America, as they prepare for the installation of a new haul rope. The haul rope, 8,000 feet long and weighing 28,000 pounds, is the main cable that pulls the two tramway cars up and down the mountain. A traffic control plan is in effect in front of the tramway during the remaining two weeks of work.
