Germanna Community College plans to reopen a building damaged by last year's earthquake in January.

The magnitude-5.8 earthquake on Aug. 23, 2011, damaged all three stairwells in the V. Earl Dickinson Building on the college's Spotsylvania campus. The earthquake also caused a floor-to-ceiling crack in the wall on the ground floor.

The school completed repairs totaling about $3.5 million in August. It then began renovations that were previously scheduled.

Germanna spokesman Mike Zitz tells The Free Lance-Star that the building will reopen Jan. 7 when the spring semester begins.

A new four-level parking deck also will open in January.
