Visitors to the Capitol this week may be disappointed to find that the rotunda will not reopen Tuesday as scheduled.
Congress will cover the Capitol's dome in scaffolding in November as part of a two-year restoration to fix more than 1,000 cracks that have developed over the decades, the building's administrators said Tuesday.
Justin Kieffer, a spokesman for the architect of the Capitol, said the project is still on schedule.
Tours will begin using the normal route, which goes through the rotunda, on Thursday morning, he said.
