Workers use a cable-cutting system to section the  giant Japanese dock that was torn away by last year's tsunami and washed ashore on Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012 in Newport, Ore. The plan is to cut the 165-ton concrete dock into five slices, like a loaf of bread, and load them onto flatbed trucks, which drive over the soft sand on a roadway of planks and steel plates.
