(b) additional anti-scale fence installed around the Statue of Andrew Jackson and the Lafayette Park Lodge House, which are undergoing repair and restoration.

A map illustrating the fencing; associated gates; and closed park areas is attached. Closures of the various parts of Lafayette Park will be identified by fencing and signage. Violation is prohibited.
