NEW YORK — A pathway flanked by six stones meant to symbolize strength and determination will be added to the Sept. 11 memorial site in lower Manhattan to honor the rescue and recovery workers who toiled for months at ground zero.

The design for the space was being unveiled Wednesday by officials from the National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum.

The idea for the dedication was announced last year. The concept was designed by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, the men who designed the Sept. 11 memorial and plaza.

The new space honors those who spent months at the site after the attacks.

It will include the path along the southwest portion of the memorial site, and includes incorporating World Trade Center steel for text inscriptions.
