Kennewick officials have learned more about the piece of the Twin Towers steel superstructure that will be coming to Kennewick.
The city received word in December that its request for a piece of debris from the Sept. 11, 2001, tragedy was approved for use in a 9/11 memorial to be established in Kennewick.
Kennewick Fire Marshal Mark Yaden said that the piece of metal weighs about 6,000 pounds, but it still is not known when it will arrive.
Fire Chief Neil Hines signed an agreement with the Port Authority of New York for the donation, which Lampson International crane company will help bring to the Tri-Cities.
Never miss a local story.
Hines said that he will know more about schedule for transporting the steel later this week.
