Update Page

Mortar is going back in! Check out the repointing photos in our gallery. The Fourth Street scaffolding should be down by mid-week, with any last work on that elevation handled by the man-lift.


You can read the June report from our Durable Slate project manager, here.


We will continue to add photos to our gallery, at least weekly, and welcome your photos, too. Send them along to Click the image, above, to view the gallery.
