Dome Restoration Project Updates

Below is the latest information on current work underway to restore the U.S. Capitol Dome.

Completion Phase

The scaffolding has been removed from the U.S. Capitol Dome and the Architect of the Capitol will continue to remove other materials from the site in preparation for final completion of the Dome Restoration project.

View all phases (INFOGRAPHIC).

Project​ Demobilization

In support of the Dome Restoration trucks deliver equipment and supplies to the East and West Fronts of the U.S. Capitol. These deliveries occur between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. Flagmen direct pedestrians to use the sidewalk during the delivery process for safety. If a pedestrian is unable to use the alternate sidewalk due to the need for wheelchair accessibility or other accommodation, then the flagmen will direct the truck traffic to stop and allow the pedestrian to safely pass on the sidewalk. 

The plan below shows the truck route (red), the pedestrian route during deliveries (blue) and the staging area (yellow).
