Sidewalks surrounding the Harry S. Truman Building in Jefferson City have been closed while repairs to the state office building's walls are under way.
Raineri Construction of St. Louis will be working on the exterior and interior walls of the building through late September, said Brittany Ruess, director of communications for the Office of Administration.
"The exterior work includes repairing, anchoring, caulking, cleaning and sealing the limestone panels," she said. Other repairs will include installing foundation drain tile, and replacing granite pavers at two entrances and interior limestone panels.
The contract for the work is $4.47 million.
The sidewalk on McCarty closed this week and is expected to reopen in four or five weeks. On Broadway Street, the sidewalk closed three weeks ago and is expected to open in the next three weeks. The sidewalk and a few parking spots on High Street closed five weeks ago. They are expected to reopen in the next two weeks.
