Kansas Statehouse $332M renovation starts to shine

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Bit by bit, panel by panel, the new copper skin of the roof and dome of the Kansas Statehouse is beginning to emerge from behind a beehive of construction equipment.

The task of replacing the worn copper on the building is one of the final major pieces of a $332 million renovation project that began more than a decade ago in Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/19f8FG7 ) that the replacement of the roof should be completed by late November.

Remaining interior work, including completion of a new visitors’ center below ground, is expected to be finished by year’s end. The center will have public access from the north entrance to the building.

Work on the existing wings of the building was finished before the start of the legislative session.
