St. Paul's Chapel Roof Replacement & Exterior Restoration

Facilities and Operations is embarking on a project to replace the roof and restore the exterior of St. Paul's Chapel. This work is critical to preventing any future damage to the interior of the building.

Beginning November 10, we are changing out the scaffolding around the Chapel. While scaffolding is replaced, we will close one walkway at a time to allow this work to proceed.

Tuesday, November 21, the Chapel Gate will also be temporarily closed to pedestrian traffic. We anticipate the Chapel Gate will reopen on November 30.

After the full scaffolding is put up on both sides of the Chapel, Facilities and Operations will begin replacing the historic terra cotta roof, consistent with the original architecture.

We anticipate the roof replacement and exterior façade restoration will take approximately two years.
