NEW YORK (AP) — Dust blankets everything in the halls of the unfinished National September 11 Memorial & Museum. But while the powder may look like the ash that covered Manhattan after the terror attacks, this time it is a product of rebirth, not destruction.

After a yearlong construction shutdown due to a funding dispute, and additional months of cleanup following Superstorm Sandy, work has been racing ahead at the museum beneath the World Trade Center memorial plaza.

About 130 workers are at the site each day. Officials say the project is on track to open to the public in the spring of 2014.

Some of the museum’s most emotion-inspiring artifacts are already in place, including a mangled fire truck and the pieces of intersecting steel known as the Ground Zero Cross.
