The pools for both the north and south towers are virtually completed. They're actually installing the granite panels on the inside of both pools.

Just to the east, you can see the steel going up for the museum pavillion.

"Most of the work thats taken place to date, so far. has been below ground and so, this is the first sign of progress above ground," says Lynn Rasic, vice president of the memorial.

By Sept. 11 of next year, this entire plaza should be completed.

Victims' relatives will be able to visit the plaza at this year's anniversary ceremony.
