Evers signs bill establishing Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial Highway in Kewaskum
KEWASKUM, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Governor Tony Evers signed a bill in Kewaskum Thursday, Oct. 31, establishing the Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial Highway.
The Memorial Highway is a portion of State Highway 28 between I-41 in Dodge County and Highway 144 in Washington County.
The Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial Education Center is under construction in Kewaskum.
The memorial includes a beam salvaged from the north tower of the World Trade Center that was unveiled Thursday.
"It's important that we honor and remember this history, including the nearly 3,000 innocent lives lost that day, including 12 known individuals with connections to Wisconsin and of course Kewaskum's own Andrea Haberman," Evers said.
Haberman's parents championed for the memorial site in Kewaskum and the Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial Highway.
