Prince William to receive World Trade Center steel
WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) - Four pieces of steel from the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center that was destroyed during 9/11 are expected to arrive Thursday morning in Prince William County.
Officials say there will be a brief ceremony at 9 a.m. at the Sean T. Connaughton Plaza in Woodbridge before the artifacts that weigh nearly 60,000 pounds will continue on to the Public Safety Training Center in Nokesville.
A news release says a design competition will be held to determine how the steel will be displayed in the county, which has been working for the past year to secure the artifacts.
Officials from the area traveled to New York and the New Jersey Port Authority last month to select the artifacts.
