INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The observation deck of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in downtown Indianapolis is closed as crews make repairs to sections of the 112-year-old limestone tower.

Crews put up scaffolding Monday to reach lower levels of the monument. The Indiana War Memorial Commission says workers will inspect and complete minor limestone and bronze repairs as part of regular maintenance.

The monument’s observation deck and gift shop will be closed during the work, although its Col. Eli Lilly Civil War Museum will remain open.

Officials say the repair work will be completed in time for electrical workers to install the thousands of lights on the monument for the annual Circle of Lights festivities on Nov. 28.
