Something is going on at the old highway department building (more recently public safety) across from the capitol. It looks like new wings are being added per the plan below.

The public safety building (former highway dept.), southwest of the capitol, is being renovated and expanded to provide space for the Attorney General's office. Late July 2007 construction update:

The $20 million renovation of the Public Safety Building should be completed in July 2008. The Attorney General's Office will use 85,050 of the 117,000 square feet, and the Department of Homeland Security will occupy 5,300 sq ft. The second floor of the east wing will be left unfinished, to allow for future expansion of the Attorney General's Office.

The building, which was built as a Works Progress Administration project in the 1930s, has been vacant since 2004, when the Department of Public Safety moved to the nearby Criminal Justice Center.

The Attorney General's office and the Alabama Department of Homeland Security moved into the renovated old highway department building after completion of the $22 million renovation and expansion.

Thankfully the state renovated this building instead of letting it rot like the old supreme court building. The building really improves the appearance of the capitol complex.
