The first phase of the 9/ 11 Memorial is nearly finished.
Soon you'll see it standing tall outside of the Blasco Memorial Library on our Bayfront.
Crews from Building Systems Incorporated volunteered their time and spent the past 2 days building a base.
An 18-foot-tall steel beam from the World Trade Center will be placed inside the base.
The memorial will also feature lighting and seating.
All of the work is being done by companies who volunteered their time.
Officials are hoping to have the project completed by September 11th of this year.
