NEW YORK (AP) -- Commuters can once again walk beneath the World Trade Center site in an area that's been closed since 9/11.

The 600-foot (183-meter)-long, marble-paved passageway will accommodate mass-transit users going into and out of lower Manhattan.

The concourse will also eventually feature retail outlets.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the passageway replaces a critical transit connection that was lost in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

Pedestrians had been crossing the busy roadway or using a pedestrian bridge that's being dismantled.

The passageway is part of a nearly $4 billion redevelopment of the World Trade Center site that includes a new transportation hub scheduled to be completed in 2015.

A ribbon-cutting was held Thursday.
