The leak stops here: It was a day many feared might never come. A new Asheville Civic Center roof is under construction, replacing an old roof notorious for dripping water during performances. The new roof will be white, intended to reflect heat from sunlight and reduce cooling costs. Added insulation is expected to further reduce energy use at the facility. The $1.5 million replacement, approved by Asheville City Council in July, is expected to be finished early next year.
