World Trade Center steel to be transported to local 9-11 memorial

Supporters of the Kitsap 9-11 Memorial are inviting members of the community to a Final Journey of steel beams from the World Trade Center and limestone from the Pentagon during a Sunday, July 28, ceremony.

The journey will include  a procession escorted by the motorcycle community from Legend Harley-Davidson in Silverdale to Evergreen Rotary Park in Bremerton. The memorial will be in the southeast corner of the park near the corner of 13th Street and Highland Avenue.

“Help us spread the word to your family and friends,” organizers said. “We encourage the motorcycle community to ride with us and the public to gather along the route to show your patriotism and support as we honor the victims and heroes of the tragic September 11th attacks by bringing these precious treasures to their final resting place at the Kitsap 9-11 Memorial site.”

Those that would like to join the procession should gather at Legend Harley-Davidson, located at 9625 Provost Road NW in Silverdale, at 4 p.m. Starting at 5 p.m., the assembled group will prepare to transport the steel and limestone and will get underway at 5:30 p.m.

The route will follow Provost Road south to Newberry Hill Road where it will head east to Chico Way. The procession will then head south on Kitsap Way to 11th Street before turning left onto Highland Avenue and into Evergreen Rotary Park.

Those that have questions about the procession or would like more information about the Kitsap 9-11 Memorial project should call 360-271-7814 or send an email to
