new roof underway
The Lawrence County Courthouse in Walnut Ridge is in the process of getting a new rubber roof installed through funds awarded after it was named to the National Register of Historic Places.
The county received a $130,000 grant, which will be used to aid in repairing the roof. The new roof, which will receive the recommended rubber installation over the hot tar method used previously, will cost between $300,000 and $400,000, according to County Judge Dale Freeman.
The surface work on the flat roof has been bid to Quality Roofing for about $106,000, according to Freeman. Work will begin soon after the county completes some prep work required before the roofers begin.
Freeman said the county will apply for additional grant funds through the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program in March 2017, which will be used to do additional work on the roof as well as some maintenance on the windows at the courthouse.
