WTC Steel Beams to come to Indianapolis for "Project 9/11"

Two steel beams from the World Trade Center will be coming to Indianapolis in April.  They are to be part of a 9/11 Memorial to be named Project 9/11.  Gregg Hess, an Indianapolis firefighter, is credited with conveiving the idea for the memorial.  

The two 22 foot beams will be escorted to Indianapolis by an American Legion mortorcycle honor guard.

 Project 9/11 will be located along the downtown canal adjascent to Fire Station 13 (439 W. Ohio Street). 

 The steel beams are being made available by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which saved a portion of the debris for just such purposes. 

The 9/11 Memorial will be formally dedicated on September 11th, 2011, on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist attacks.
