Stairwell Reopening and Repainting

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

The central stairwell connecting the A level and first and second floors, which has been closed for resurfacing, is expected to reopen on Wednesday, May 4.

In the meantime, the walls of the front stairwell, which connects all the floors, are being painting.  It has not been closed, but visitors are asked to exercise caution when using it because the steps and landings are covered with dropcloths. The painting should be completed by the end of the day on Friday, May 6.
