Temporary Rotunda Closure

Thursday, May 22, 2014

2:30 p.m. - The Capitol Rotunda is temporarily closed and will be reopened as soon as possible. The closure is out of an abundance of caution to allow inspections to the protective canopy in the Rotunda after a small piece of protective padding between the scaffold and Rotunda walls dislodged. Information about the Rotunda reopening will be provided as soon as available.
