Shown: Before / Construction / After, main entry

Deteriorated concrete steps leading to the main entry and side entries were removed and reconstructed. An isolated single step was removed to eliminate a tripping hazard. An accessibility ramp at the front entrance had previously required guard posts at the top of the steps; reconfigured access to the church allowed removal of the ramp.
