University Park, Pa- Penn State is in the pre-construction phase of making repairs to Old Main.
While students are off for spring break, crews are looking at masonry work and other construction that will be done involving Old Main’s bell tower.
WTAJ was told construction should begin this summer. A crane was part of this week’s pre-construction examination. It was removed today.
Penn State says their goal is to maintain historical accuracy any time work is done on the building.
Construction is already completed on the east staircase inside Old Main, along with slate shingle replacements on the roof.
