Built in 1982, the glass domed atrium at Liberty City Hall has presented a variety of challenges, including temperature control (particularly on the third floor) and many leaky spots. Beginning this spring, the domed roof will be replaced with a structural supported flat roof with vertical glass.
In June 2022, the Liberty City Council approved a contract with JE Dunn for design and construction services to repair the City Hall atrium and staff have been working with the contractor to finalize the design and construction plans.
In addition to solving the temperature control and water leak issues, this project will include:
- ADA-compliant entryway from Kansas Street with an overhang. New concrete entryway will also mitigate pooling water
- Replaced steps from Kansas Street
- LED decorative lighting along the new roof line
- New flooring on the second floor
Construction is slated to begin in April. Staff and the contractor will strive to maintain access to services at City Hall throughout the project, but because this will be an active construction site, we encourage residents and customers to utilize online services whenever possible in the coming months.
The project will be undertaken in phases that will include parking closures on Kansas Street, between Water and Missouri, and on Missouri Street, between Kansas and Mill. Timing and length of each phase is not yet finalized. This will allow space for the large construction crane operations. Barring temporary closures for staging of equipment or materials, these streets will still be open to through traffic, but parking will be reduced when the crane is in place.
