South Light Court Elevator
Two elevators in the Ohio Statehouse will be closed for modernization. The work will continue for several months.

South Light Court Elevator Closed

The elevator in the South Light Court will be closed beginning October 18 for construction. The stairs will remain open to the public for several months during the project.

For elevator access to the House of Representatives and the House Clerk’s office, please follow signage to the south elevator near the Map Room and Atrium. On the second floor, turn right and enter the House Chamber. A member of the House Sergeant-at-arms team will be available for assistance in the House Chamber.

South Entrance Elevator Closed

Next week, the southwest elevator leading to and from the parking garage sliding doors will be closed for renovations from October 24 through the month of November.

Those who require elevator access may use the northwest elevator near the revolving doors to and from the parking garage. Visitors in the garage without ID badges may use the intercom to call the Ohio State Highway Patrol for security check and entrance to the Ohio Statehouse.

If you have questions, please contact the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board office at 614-752-9777.
