Construction crews at the World Trade Center hoisted a flag-bedecked spire to the top of the site's signature One World Trade Center building Thursday.

Workers raised the spire to a temporary work platform, where ironworkers can permanently attach it to the roof in coming weeks, said Steven Plate, head of construction at the site.

"It's a 22-ton structure that will house a state of the art lighting facility as well as a beacon that will be seen for miles around," Plate said.

It will "give a tremendous indication to people around the entire region and the world that we are back and we are better than ever."
