Capitol Steps Will be Closed for the Summer

The steps at the east entrance of the State Capitol will be closed for the summer so crews can refurbish them and add new technology to melt winter ice.

The heating system will eliminate the need for chemical de-icers that can damage the limestone.  The new system will melt ice on the steps and on sidewalks in a half moon shape around the east entrance.

The steps, a popular spot for photos will be closed throughout the renovations.  Overall, the project will cost $90,000.  The project should be finished by Sept. 1.  The Lansing State Journal has more.
