With the efforts of community leaders, Bill Lampson of Lampson Crane of Kennewick and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Kennewick has a piece of the World Trade Center for a memorial of 9-11.

The 35 foot twisted column of steel from one of the World Trade Center Towers will be installed at the Southridge Sports complex. The lighted column will be visible from all vantage points of the ports complex as well as highway 395 according to Kennewick Fire Marshall Ken Yaden.

“We do not want people to forget about those that were needlessly taken from us and those who gave their own lives in hopes to save others,” said Kennewick Fire Chief Neil Hines in a statement.

The beam was picked up in June and it’ transportation was arranged and paid for by Lampson Crane.

Fire Marshall Ken Yaden said ” “You look at it, and it just brings the whole event to life,”

Much of the steel from the twin towers that were destroyed on September 11, 2001 was melted down and was used to make a new naval ship.

Kennewick was one of a very few communities to receive an artifact of September 11.
