What will become of the Mid-South Fair Time Capsule?

Mid-South Fair Time Capsule, originally uploaded by joespake.

Apparently, the Mid-South Fair has been around since 1856. Yesterday I ran across this marker in a parking lot at the Fairgrounds, near the main East Parkway entrance. I remembered asking about it as a child, and I think it was my first time capsule experience.
My question today is: With the Mid-South Fair officially moved to Mississippi, and the Fairgrounds soon to be subject to God-knows-what public project, what is going to happen to the time capsule, scheduled to be opened in 2056?
