Building a Monument to First Responders

Monumental Beam Facts

Just how big are these beams? They’re HUGE. They’re so big that special permits were necessary in order to cross bridges on the way back to Oak Lawn.  Here are the details straight from the Port Authority of NY & NJ:

I-0050 192″ long x 35″ wide x 26″ high – 2722 lbs
I-0052 192″ long x 16″ wide x 8.5″ high – 1687 lbs
I-163 300″ long x 48″ wide x 45″ high – 13,200lbs
I-165 252″ long x 12″ wide x 41″ high – 7,500lbs

Beams from the WTC will be used in Oak Lawn's Monument

Heavy beams required special permits
