A 12-foot I-beam salvaged from the World Trade Center was brought to Manatee County in July by a four-member team from the fire district.
Originally, plans called for completion of the memorial, built around window column in time for this year’s Sept. 11 observance. But the time table proved over-optimistic.
The memorial is being designed and built with volunteer talent.
