RADCLIFF, Ky. (AP) - The final pieces of the Kentucky Sept. 11 Memorial are being set in place.

The News-Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/2bOHXrs) that the memorial, which is located on the grounds of the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-Central in Radcliff, was dedicated on the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Thanks to an $85,000 grant from the Radcliff-Fort Knox Tourism and Convention Commission, the site will have new black granite wings in time for the 15th anniversary.

Project chair Sam Young says the right wall of the memorial will feature images of the four attack sites. The left wall will be inscribed with the names of 111 Kentuckians who have died overseas serving the country since the events of 9/11.

A dedication of the memorial is planned for 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11.
