The 9/11 Memorial Museum in Lower Manhattan has launched an annual membership program to help sustain and develop its programming and exhibits.

The memorial museum portion of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum is slated to open next spring. It will feature a museum pavilion above ground leading to the main memorial museum underground. The museum had to be built at bedrock to give visitors access to the historic remnants of the World Trade Center, which are protected under federal preservation law, according to the museum's website.

The above-ground memorial -- featuring waterfalls, pool, engraved names, and oak trees -- opened to the public on September 12, 2011.

Membership offers various benefits, including unlimited yearly admission to the museum for one adult. It also offers 10 percent discount at the gift shop and cafe.

Individuals who sign up before April 1, 2014, can save 10 percent. Individual membership costs $63, while $225 will get you a family membership.

The memorial and museum cost $700 million to build and have an annual operating cost of $60 million. While visiting the memorial is free, the museum portion will charge admission to help cover operating costs.

    Officials plan to build a fence to curb suicides on the George Washington Bridge. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says there have been 13 suicides and 40 rescues on the span so far this year. There were 16 deaths for all of 2013. Plans call for erecting a 9-foot fence to replace the current railing to make jumping from the bridge difficult.
