State Officials To Hear Briefing On Capitol Renovation

AP 6-2,2015

Gov. Matt Mead and top Wyoming lawmakers are set to hear a briefing Tuesday on plans to start renovating the state Capitol in Cheyenne this summer.

Mead and the lawmakers are presiding over the nearly $300-million project. Tuesday’s meeting at the State Capitol in Cheyenne will feature presentations from Special Assistant Attorney General Michael O’Donnell, who’s coordinating the project.

Plans call for the Capitol to be completely refurbished, including new mechanical, fire-suppression and elevator systems. The neighboring Herschler Building will also be refurbished.

State elected officials and workers will be relocated out of the Capitol into temporary quarters around Cheyenne while work is ongoing. Plans call for the project to be finished by late 2018.
