The World Trade Center site's owners are laying a small piece of a new foundation for three planned skyscrapers at ground zero. Construction workers have been digging an 85-foot (25.5-meter) trench to build the retaining wall to hold the foundations for the towers, which are scheduled to begin construction over the next two years. Workers for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey planned to set in place steel for the first panel of the 1,600-foot (480-meter)-long wall on Thursday morning. "The start of the foundation work for the east side of the site is an important step in living up to the Port Authority's commitment to rebuilding," agency chairman Anthony R. Coscia said.
