9/11 memorial and museum may be completed by 2014.

The president of the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum says continuous construction at the museum is expected to restart at the end of the month.

Joe Daniels also told Fox 5 News on Tuesday that "hopefully" the museum will be completed by the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014.

An agreement to complete the Sept. 11 museum was reached Monday, on the eve of the 11th anniversary of the terror attacks.

It originally was supposed to open this month. Construction all but ceased a year ago because of a funding squabble between the foundation and the Port Authority, which owns the World Trade Center site.
