In 1998, the Legislative Council authorized the first major renovation of the State House in nearly 40 years.  The renovations will address health and safety issues and modernize the heating, ventilation, electrical and telecommunication systems throughout the building, but in keeping with the 1910 era of the State House additions. 
State House renovations are in 4 phases, 3 or which are now completed: 

  • House Chamber and elevators                      1998
  • South Wing, including Senate Chamber         1999
  • West Wing                                                   2000
  • North Wing & Underground Connector        2001

The North Wing work is nearly finished, with an estimated completion date of February 15, 2002.  The cost for the renovations of the State House and underground connector are about $32 million, $19 million through a bond and the remainder through General Fund appropriations by the Legislature.
