Bush Marks 9/11 Anniversary with Visit to Ground Zero

NEW YORK--(AP) President Bush is embarking on nearly 24 hours of somber observances at the places terrorists struck five years ago.

His first stop is New York, where he'll lay a wreath at the spot where the World Trade Center towers fell.

Later, he attends a service of prayer and remembrance at St. Paul's Chapel. The 240-year-old Episcopal church is across the street from ground zero.

Tomorrow he visits a firehouse nicknamed "Fort Pitt" in the Lower East Side in honor of the first responders who rushed into the towers.

From New York, he travels to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 slammed into the ground, and then the Pentagon.

He'll end the day with a televised address to the nation.

    The Texas Department of Transportation is looking to help make traveling easier for travelers in Tyler.
