World Trade Center - Planning and Construction, 2

Once the basic structure of the trade center was in place, work proceeded at a fast clip.  Three floors could be constructed in ten days.

As work continued, between the mid-sixties and early-seventies, sixty construction workers were killed.  No PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson) train was ever rerouted, and PATH service was never disrupted, because of the building project.
