BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - A beam from one of the World Trade Center Twin Towers has arrived in Bossier City to become a permanent part of the city’s Liberty Garden.

KTBS-TV (https://bit.ly/1CrYZle) reports the 16-foot beam traveled by trailer from New York to the Municipal Complex in the city Tuesday. It was led by a processional of fire trucks and law enforcement vehicles, and welcomed with a ceremony that included a host of local officials and dignitaries. One of the fire engines in the processional originally belonged to a fleet from a fire station in New Jersey and responded to ground zero on Sept. 11, 2001.

The beam will be permanently erected in the Liberty Garden between the Bossier Police and Fire Departments at their Municipal Complex on Benton Road.
