The Alamo is getting a facelift. The Texas Legislature approved $5 million for upgrading bathrooms so they are ADA compliant, structural repairs, preservation work, and adding fiber optics.
Preservation and structural work began Monday on the aging Alamo. Visitors will see scaffolding for the next few months, but the Alamo is open to the public.
Texas General Land Office spokeswoman Brittany Eck says some of the work addresses safety concerns at the Alamo Research Center.
