As the 9th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., approaches, New York City officials say they're making progress in rebuilding at Ground Zero.

Fighting over the details of the Ground Zero project has delayed construction for years, but those disputes have now been resolved.

"We now have a plan," declared Chris Ward, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. "We have a budget. We have the partners, and we have the construction team to get it done."

On Tuesday, two 70-foot steel columns were installed in the 9/11 Memorial Museum.   They were salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center's north tower.

"I think there had been doubts, there had been concerns but we are here today to truly acknowledge what has happened recently," Ward said.
    
The memorial, with reflecting waterfall-filled pools set above the footprints of the fallen towers, with a wall of victims' names, trees and green spaces is expected to be open by Sept. 11, 2011.
