Renovations on the University of Virginia's Rotunda will be picking up speed this week.

Crews will start removing the scaffolding Wednesday on the west side of the Rotunda. The work should take a couple of weeks. They will also start painting the copper roof white.

The project manager, Jody Lahendro, says crews are well ahead of schedule.

"We're fortunate in that the project wasn't scheduled to be finished originally until the summer - until July - and scaffolding was going to come down then but the great project team we have has been pushing very hard and we're going to be able to have the scaffolding down before graduation," Lahendro said.

The scaffolding has been up for almost a year now. This is the just the first phase of renovations to the Rotunda.

The rest of the work is expected to wrap up by 2016.
