(INDIANAPOLIS) - Crews are working to finish Indy's 9/11 memorial by the ten-year anniversary of the terrorist attack.

Builders have been working six days a week to complete the site along the downtown canal in time for a planned ceremony on Sunday.

Firefighter Greg Hess, the man spearheading the project, says the main attraction will be the two beams from the twin towers in the middle of the memorial. He says the goal is not only to recognize the efforts of emergency responders, but also the civilians who lost their lives in the September 11th attack.

Efforts are also underway to meet the fundraising goal. Right now, the memorial is about $75,000 short.

The dedication ceremony at the memorial is open to the public.
