History uncovered at Eau Claire City Hall

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW)- Back in October we showed you a glimpse of the renovations happening at city hall, and now you can actually start to see some of the buildings history.

Engineering Project Manager Rodney Bonesteel said they’re finished with most of the demolition phase, and now you can see some of the original design, like the sky lights.

Bonesteel said there’s been some good surprises along the way, including the condition of some of the hard wood floors.

He said now they’re starting to restore the building, which is the longest phase.

“A lot of the historic architecture you can see, we’re working on getting it restored,” Bonesteel said. “We’re putting in walls and things for offices and things will go back in place so we’re kind of starting to reconstruct.”

Bonesteel said they hope to have the project completed by Labor Day of 2019, and the reconstruction will cost a little over $5 million

Weather Outlook: Finally! More sunshine this weekend

The fog and clouds lifted late Friday morning, and that meant the sun finally shined brightly for much of the day. While it doesn’t have a lot of power this time of year given we’re only a week away from the winter solstice, it still helped warm us into the mid 30s.
