Capitol improvements: Roof repairs planned for Missouri state building

Wednesday, June 3, 2009 | 8:13 a.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri Capitol is getting a new roof.

Jeff Schaeperkoetter, who oversees repairs of state buildings, said parts of the roof have been held down with ballast since at least last year.

Crews will also brace a concrete wall around the roof to withstand earthquakes.

The project is to begin June 11 and is expected to take about five months. The cost to the state is about $2.1 million, roughly $1 million less than expected. Schaeperkoetter said the recession has held down the costs for a variety of state projects.
