Kansas Statehouse Renovation Nears Completion

KSAL StaffNovember 11, 2013

A giant construction crane towering beside the Kansas Statehouse is coming down next month as a massive renovation of the building nears its end.

And Statehouse Architect Barry Greis said Monday the cost of the 13-year project will fall a little short of the $332 million projected by state officials last year.

The big crane has been used for work on the Statehouse dome, where scaffolding has been removed. Greis said that beams that supported the scaffolding will start coming down this week.

Meanwhile, work continues on a large visitors’ center in the basement. The floor will contain a map of Kansas set in stone, which each of the 105 counties identified.

Greis said some landscaping will wait until early spring because of the weather.
