Delayed marathon bombing memorials to be finished by summer

CHELSEA, Mass. (AP) — Permanent memorials to the victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings are taking shape in a foundry outside Boston.

But the long-awaited monuments of bronze, granite and lighted glass won’t be ready in time for this year’s race on April 15. The $2 million project, which has been substantially redesigned since planning began four years ago, should be finished by this summer, according to city officials.
