NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaching, the memorial at Ground Zero is coming together.

Memorial President Joe Daniels said the project is on time and will be completed as promised.

“You’ll be able to circumnavigate both pools to find the name of any victim that died either on that day or February of 1993 or from the Pentagon or Flight 93,” Daniels said. “This is America’s National 9/11 Memorial and it includes all of the victims of that day.”

The memorial will feature the names of the 2,982 victims inscribed on bronze plaques around the two pools.

Daniels said so much demand is anticipated from the general public that the memorial will be instituting a reservation system that will go online this summer.
