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.
Needing repair and replacement of failing materials, the Wyoming Capitol dome will be covered with scaffolding and a white scaffold covering until mid-2019 as part of the ongoing renovation work on the Capitol. The dome scaffolding will start to be installed the week of September 11.
The Capitol Building Restoration Oversight Group met on July 18, 2017 to consider issues related to Capitol design, Herschler Building design, Capitol Extension design, site design, and potential change items.
