A construction crane going up next to the Saskatchewan Legislative Building marks the beginning of a $15-million overhaul.
The provincial government says extensive work is needed to repair the dome’s deteriorated stones, copper roofing and facade.
Visitors to the Legislative Building in Regina have noticed water dripping inside during the winter.
Along with the crane, there will be scaffolding set up to let crews work safely on the surface of the dome.
Work on the dome is expected to be completed by December 2015.
