The Office of Management and Budget announced today that the south Capitol sign replacement project is nearly complete. The sign, located near Boulevard Avenue on the mall area of the North Dakota State Capitol grounds, recently received an upgrade.

“This is a fantastic enhancement to the grand Capitol mall area,” Facility Management Director John Boyle said. “The new sign is larger. It is composed of granite and new south capitol signlimestone, and it will be well-lit at night.”

The sign that was replaced had adorned the south Capitol mall area since the 1960s and it was showing significant erosion and discoloration.

The south Capitol sign replacement project began back in September and will be complete once landscaping is installed early this summer.
