Capitol Dome To Get Repairs

If you've been to Washington, D.C. during the past two years, you might have noticed that the Washington Monument was covered by scaffolding, needed to support workers repairing the damage that resulted from the 2011 earthquake.  Starting next month, on the other end of the Mall, another prominent structure will start undergoing repairs and will eventually receive a scaffold covering.  The dome of the U.S. Capitol, which is made mostly of cast iron, and has been experiencing a significant amount of deterioration, will undergo a "multi-year project" of repair work, initially estimated to cost about $59 million.

Read the story at the Washington Post.
