Workers Map Capitol Dome Ahead Of Renovation

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A team of specialized workers has been rappelling down the gold-plated dome at the Wyoming Capitol this week. They’re taking photographs and measurements for a planned renovation of the building.

The three workers are from an Ithaca, N.Y., consulting firm called Vertical Access. They’re going to use the data they collect to determine whether the dome needs repairs.

Suzanne Norton is project coordinator with the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information. She says the work is the most detailed assessment of the dome in the Capitol’s history.

The Associated Press reports workers were on the job Monday and Tuesday and are set to finish on Wednesday.

State officials say renovations are planned in the coming years to the Capitol’s electrical, wiring, heating, cooling and fire-suppression systems.
