Weather permitting, a beam from the World Trade Center is expected to be placed today in front of Barnegat Township hall.
Mayor Al Cirulli said the beam placement, and other finishing touches to a planned 9/11 memorial should make it possible to hold a dedication of the memorial by Nov. 3.
The memorial was originally planned to be donated on Sept. 11, but since a majority of the work on the project was being done by volunteers, the workers' paid jobs took priority, pushing the deadline back, township officials have said.
Working with officials from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and others in town, township officials obtained the beam from the World Trade Center.
This is the second such memorial in the town. Another, donated last year, sits on the Barnegat Township High School football field, which is not easily accessible to people who have disabilities because of its location on the school's campus.
