The North Plaza of the Missouri State Capitol receives a high level of public utilization, and a recent history of challenges with this project makes its successful completion even more important.
This project is currently in the design phase. Its scope includes replacement of stone pavers, edge stones and new concrete slabs with necessary drainage for the North Plaza and flanking radius sidewalks. The north wall will be repaired including tuck pointing on the granite base for the Statue. The tree planters along the north wall will be redesigned, and existing trees will be removed and replaced.
This area is paved with Carthage marble, which is not currently available. Consequently, various substitute materials will be evaluated in terms of their ability to replicate the plaza’s original appearance and to exceed its durability, stability and weather resistance.
