NY governor: Agreement reached on Sept. 11 museum

NEW YORK - (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says an agreement that paves the way for the completion of the Sept. 11 museum has been reached a day before the 11th anniversary of the terror attacks.

Cuomo announced the agreement between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the foundation that controls the National September 11 Memorial & Museum on Monday. The Port Authority owns the World Trade Center site.

The museum once was scheduled to open this year. Work slowed late last year when the subcontractors at the site stopped getting paid.

Almost 4.5 million people have visited the accompanying outdoor memorial since it opened last September.
