Hart Senate Office Building Roof and Skylight Replacement

Construction activities for the repair and replacement of the Hart Senate Office Building’s roof and skylights are underway. In support of this effort, a portion of the sidewalk along C street, between the Hart and Dirksen Senate Office Buildings, will be closed through the summer of 2015. The sidewalk closure is required for a material hoist on the side of the building that will facilitate delivery of construction materials to the roof. Signage will be posted to assist pedestrian traffic affected by the sidewalk closure. The AOC has installed hanging scaffolding throughout the Hart Building atrium to support interior construction and repair activities related with the project.

In December 2014, skylight replacement will begin and will continue through the spring of 2015.

Construction activities are expected to continue through the summer of 2015. 

UPDATE: January 6, 2015

  • A crane will be used on C Street, NE to hoist materials to the roof of the Hart Senate Office Building as part of the roof and skylight replacement project. The crane lift is planned to occur from 6:00 a.m. Saturday, January 10, 2015 through 5:00 p.m. Sunday, January 11, 2015C Street, NE will remain open to vehicles and pedestrians, though it may be necessary to stop vehicles for several minutes at a time while materials are being hoisted to the roof. Flag men will be in place to direct traffic through the duration of the lifting activities.
