Update on projects planned for the Capitol Complex

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- While plenty of big ticket projects are underway and planned for the Capitol Complex in Pierre a number of smaller projects are also proceeding.  Kristine Day with the Office of the State Engineer says crews are replacing railing recently added around Capitol Lake.

Day says a major project is underway to replace the retaining wall behind the Soldiers and Sailors Building.

Day says they are working with contractor A-G-E and the Pierre School District to make sure the work doesn’t interfere with track and field activities next spring.

Work is also being done on a small retaining wall at the Becker-Hanson building.  Day presented updates on the projects to the Capitol Complex Restoration and Beautification Commission.
