(Shanksville) -- The construction drawings are nearly complete for a visitors' center at the Flight 93 National Memorial in southwestern Pennsylvania, meaning the project remains on track for a summer groundbreaking.

Jeff Reinbold, the National Park Service superintendent for western Pennsylvania, says the agency is "doing the final touches on the drawings.'' 

The visitors' center is one portion of the work scheduled to begin at the park about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, where the hijacked United Airlines flight crashed during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Forty crew members and passengers were killed.

The $20 million phase also includes a pedestrian bridge and a possible learning center. The final phase calls for a 93-foot Tower of Voices containing 40 wind chimes.
