NOW: Signs unveiled for 9/11 Memorial Highway in Washington County

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- People driving in Washington County will soon see some new signs along certain stretches of a state highway. 

Thursday, Sept. 17, special signs were unveiled which will be placed along the Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial Highway. 

The Memorial Highway runs along State Highway 28 from Highway 144, in the Town of Farmington to Interstate 41. The signs will also be placed on the interstate to help people find the highway. 

It's part of a larger goal to remember and memorialize those whose lives were lose, especially in a day and age where many kids and teenagers were not even alive when it happened. 

"I had given talks to young people and like I said, fortunately, they can have no conscious knowledge of those events, but they want to be aware of those events," said Gordon Haberman, who helped create Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial. 

It's part of the Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial and Education Center, currently under construction in Kewaskum. It's the brainchild of Gordon and Kathy Haberman, who lost their daughter during the 9/11 attacks in New York.
