Old Capitol Dome Raising

Contractors lifted the new dome atop the Old Capitol building in the University of Iowa's Pentacrest around 1:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24. Workers initially were waiting to see if the weather, which was cold and breezy Monday morning, would cooperate. Keep watching this page for the most current information about the project, as well as photos of the dome raising. (Last updated Tuesday, February 25, 2003 2:28 PM )
