City Hall masonry work to begin soon

August 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET — A Providence company hired to rebuild portions of the masonry facade of City Hall that were damaged by frost is expected to begin work in a few days, says Public Works Director Sheila McGauvran.
RD Preservation Inc. will start by erecting scaffolding around around the Main and Court street portions of the building after finalizing the details of its $194,000 contract.
In mid-February, the city barricaded the sidewalks in those areas after large granite blocks and bricks from the facade of the building became loose, posing a danger to pedestrians.
