(AP) The final pieces of the spire that will top One World Trade Center and make it soar to a symbolic 1,776 feet when fully installed are scheduled to be raised up to the building's roof.


The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the pieces are scheduled to be lifted to a temporary work platform on Thursday morning. They will be installed at a later date.


The 408-foot spire will serve as a world-class broadcast antenna.


The new tower is at the northwest corner of the World Trade Center site, which is well on its way to reconstruction with the 72-story Four World Trade Center and other buildings.


The raising of the pieces was originally scheduled for Monday, but was postponed because of weather issues.
