The Wyoming Capitol is closed to the public during the restoration project. The Wyoming Capitol Square Project centers on the restoration of the Capitol, which is a National Historic Landmark, and includes the rehabilitation of the adjacent Herschler Building. This complex multi-year project will preserve the historic character of the Capitol, improve public access to the political process, and address needed life safety and building systems deficiencies.
Over the weekend, state agencies will begin moving into the remodeled and expanded Herschler East in downtown Cheyenne. The Wyoming Department of Education and Wyoming Department of Revenue will be open to the public in their new locations on Monday, April 30. The Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments, Wyoming State Engineer’s Office, Wyoming Environmental Quality Council, and the State Board of Equalization will continue to move to Herschler East in the following two weeks. The Wyoming Department of Audit will move to the Hathaway Building.
The Capitol Building Restoration Oversight Group met on May 2, 2018 consider issues related to Capitol design, Herschler Building design, Capitol Extension design, site design, and potential change items.
