A contractor has finally been hired to build the foundation for the World Trade Center memorial, and it will begin construction at the site later this month.
The Port Authority and the Memorial Foundation awarded a $17 million contract to E.E. Cruz of Holmdel, N.J. earlier this week to construct the foundation and footings for the six acre memorial and museum.
Well, it looks like it's finally going forward. The plans are still for the memorial and the museum to open on September 11, 2009.
I wouldn't bet on it being open by then, but we'll see.
