Construction Expected to Start Soon on New Capitol Monument

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia state government is removing two magnolia trees and closing sidewalks on Capitol Square as it prepares to build a new monument to honor Virginia’s Native Americans.

The Virginia Department of General Services said Monday that construction on the monument, called Mantle, is expected to start later this month. The monument is expected to be completed in December.

Several trees will be planted once the monument is complete.
