Workers in New York City broadened their search for human remains at ground zero, expanding the effort to a service road and several nearby streets, buildings and rooftops that may have been missed in the cleanup after the Sept. 11 attacks.

City and state officials said debris from the World Trade Center could have been packed beneath a 60-foot-wide service road that was rebuilt in March 2002.

"A layer of debris may still exist" just below the road on the western edge of the site, according to a report issued by the city's Department of Design and Construction and the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center.

Workers have found more than 200 pieces of remains inside manholes along the road since utility workers discovered bones inside a manhole last week.
