Work to begin on 9/11 memorial at Red Run

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Construction is expected to begin next week for a Sept. 11, 2001, memorial in Washington Township, Pa.

The memorial at Red Run Park will feature artifacts from the three sites of terrorist attacks 11 years ago — Ground Zero in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the field where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pa.

According to The Associated Press, nearly 3,000 people were killed in those attacks.

GRC General Contractor Inc. will start on the main structure, Washington Township Manager Mike Christopher said Wednesday.

Landscaping and paving crews are on standby, he said in a township supervisors meeting.

To date, the township has raised $67,361 toward the project.
