A Sept. 11, 2001, memorial at Red Run Park is taking shape as GRC General Contractor Inc. crews install beams and prepare to complete the roof structure. An electrician could be working at the site as early as Friday followed by Washington Township, Pa., maintenance workers and masons next week, officials said. When completed, the memorial at the park off Pa. 16 will feature artifacts from the three sites of terrorist attacks nearly 12 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. “I hope when it's all done, and people go there, they can sit, meditate or just enjoy the solitude to think about what people sacrificed,” said William Conrad, a township supervisor and chairman of the organizing committee of volunteers.
