Could newfangled technology be the thing that saves the ever-controversial, ever-crumbling Pier 40? The city has announced the winner of a six-month competition seeking cheaper solutions for the city's pricey maritime infrastructure, and that winner is 3D printing. A British company has figured out a way to print concrete casements for underwater pilings to protect them from additional erosion. The city hopes to test the technology on, yep, Pier 40.
