A piece of the WTC travels through Eastern Iowa

Posted:
CLEAR LAKE (KWWL) -

A piece of the World Trade Center is traveled through Iowa. It's headed to its permanent home outside the Clear Lake Fire Department.

Members from the department traveled to New York City this week to pick up the I-beam salvaged from the terrorist attack on 9/11. The plan is to make a memorial sculpture to honor all of those who have fallen while serving. The beam will be located outside the newly constructed building in Clear Lake.

A motorcycle procession is leading the beam from Coralville to Waterloo. Firefighters in both departments are getting a glimpse of the steel beam before the unveiling Thursday night in Clear Lake.
