OLYMPIA -- DES is seeking buyers to purchase, remove and relocate two residential structures on the West Capitol Campus – the Carlyon House (201 Sid Snyder Ave SW) and Ayer House (1417 Columbia St SW), commonly known as the Press Houses.
Several DES services on the Capitol Campus will re-start on July 1 following the statewide reopening.
DES has started considering permits for outdoor events that will occur after June 30 as well as banners on the Capitol Way pedestrian bridge. The agency began issuing permits for all other types of displays on the campus in the spring.
Clarissa Easton has joined the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) as Project Director for Legislative Campus Modernization (LCM), a multi-phased project on the Capitol Campus that includes replacing the Irving R. Newhouse Building, replacing or renovating the Joel M. Pritchard Building, and renovating the third and fourth floors of the John L. O'Brien Building.
The Department of Enterprise Services (DES) will temporarily close the Capitol Lake Pedestrian Bridge near Marathon Park on Wednesday, May 5 between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. to repair damaged decking boards.
Three decking boards were damaged by vandalism that occurred the night of May 2. The bridge will remain open to the public until the repair begins on May 5. The impacted area has been covered and sectioned off for pedestrian safety. Signs are posted on each end of the bridge to alert visitors of the upcoming repair and temporary closure.
OLYMPIA – An order restricting access to portions of West Capitol Campus since January is no longer in place, and that means fencing surrounding the area will come down. Removal work is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
