Supreme Court Renovations

The Supreme Court building is currently undergoing some major renovations to repair the crumbling marble on the facade. The front of the building is encased in scaffolding, with a scrim being put up over the scaffolding. Construction is also going on in the grounds on the southern side of the building.

The scrim is still up as of May 2013:

    Dear David and others,
    I notice the scaffolding pix were from July. Anyone know the current status of the exterior appearance for the Supreme Court? Also, anyone know who to apply to to film inside?
    Thanks!
