Work to Begin Sunday on Capitol Dome

MARCH 9, 2006 - Posted at 9:06 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Secretary of State Charlie Daniels says workers will begin placing scaffolding around the Arkansas Capitol next week as part of the dome's first restoration work in nearly four decades.  A crane will be set up on the northwest side of the Capitol on Sunday to lift construction equipment and scaffolding into place on the dome.

Daniels said erection of the scaffolding will take at least 30 days to complete, and the scaffolding will remain around the dome throughout the summer.  During the set-up, public access to the building's west entrance will be re-routed to the capitol's south entrance.  Pedestrian and vehicle access will be restricted.

The restoration work is being done through a $1 million grant from the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council.  The work will be done in three phases focusing on the dome, the north facade and the dome platform.
