Here is a great article where steel beams and other material from the Towers will be repurposed as a memorial at the new Special Response Team Headquarters. I love how they treat this steel with dignity and TLC for this amazing memorial.

SOMERSET, Ky. (WTVQ) — A piece of steel from the World Trade Center Twin Towers will be repurposed as a 9/11 Memorial outside the Somerset-Pulaski County Special Response Team’s new headquarters.

The memorial will feature two black, granite columns measuring 11 feet tall and 17 inches square — a proportional size to the Twin Towers when they stood in New York City — and will hold the piece of the north tower I-beam, according to the Somerset-Pulaski Economic Development Authority.

“This steel is treated with dignity and we at SRT think of it as one of our own,” SRT Chief Doug Baker said. “When the fire ravaged our building, we acted immediately to protect this important piece of our history and knew we wanted to do something to make its presence even more significant when we rebuilt.”
