More World Trade Center debris will be sifted Monday in the city’s ongoing effort to identify as many human remains as possible from the 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, officials said Friday.

Family members of 9/11 victims were alerted by email Friday of the city’s intent to start a fresh round of sifting at its forensic platform at Fresh Kills in Staten Island.

City officials say about 60 truckloads of construction debris have been collected around the site over the past 2½ years.

The sifting is expected to continue for about 10 weeks and the multi-agency operation is being led by the office of the chief medical examiner.
