CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A decorative arch outside the Public Service Commission's headquarters in Charleston is undergoing repairs.
Commission spokeswoman Martina Johnson says an architectural firm found that the arch's bricks were unstable.
Johnson tells the Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/YWBWyT ) that the brick facing has been removed. But the arch's steel beam framework is stable and will remain for now.
Maynard Smith Construction Co. of Charleston is doing the repairs. Foreman Tim King says wood paneling placed on windows and the arch support structure's roof to protect them during the work will be removed by Monday or Tuesday.
Johnson says the architectural firm will determine what the next step will be.
The building opened in 1984.
