Officials say water damage caused by leaks atop the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in downtown Indianapolis are more extensive than originally thought.

The discovery means repairs to the interior of the city landmark will take longer than expected and delay by about a month the start of exterior renovations.

That exterior work had been set to start Friday and be completed by Sept. 25.

But Brig. Gen. J. Stewart Goodwin of Indiana War Memorials says that work is now expected to begin Sept. 20 and be finished by Oct. 20.

Water entered the monument through its observation deck and its “Liberty” statue, causing part of the internal support system to deteriorate. The monument sits at the center of downtown Indianapolis’ Monument Circle.
