Materials needed to complete an 80-foot high structure designed to mark the lost lives of Westchester residents killed in the 9/11 attacks are set to arrive in Kenisco Dam Plaza on Thursday.
A caravan of six tractor trailers will transport material needed to complete the project, consisting of steel rods that will jut skyward from 109 granite stones etched with the victims? names and quotes provided by family members. Called ?The Rising,? the memorial was designed by architect Frederic Schwartz, who envisioned the 109 steel rods intertwining as they reach for the sky.
Last year, on September 11th hundreds gathered for a partial dedication of the memorial, which could not be completed on time because of a hold up getting material for the rods.
By the end of June the project should be completed. There is no date set for its formal dedication.
