OLYMPIA –- The steam system that supports a dozen state office buildings on the Capitol Campus, including the Legislative Building, will be taken off-line at midnight on Saturday, July 20, so that crews can make repairs to the central powerhouse.
During the outage, the buildings will be without heat and hot water.
The steam system will be turned back on immediately after the repair. Heat and hot water are expected to be available by 8 p.m. Saturday.
Crews will remove a large blue Atlas cedar tree limb that poses potential safety hazards for pedestrians along Cherry Lane near the northwest corner of the Insurance Building on Wednesday, June 26.
Sidewalks along the northwest corner of Insurance Building will be closed during the work, and some parking spaces on Cherry Lane will be cordoned off. A small number of parking spaces on the south side of the Winged Victory circle will be cordoned off as a staging area.
