CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – The renovated Wyoming State Capitol building will reopen to the public on July 10, which is Wyoming Statehood Day and 130 years after the Capitol first opened.
Festivities planned for the reopening include a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by tours of the Capitol Square Project, live music and entertainment and fireworks. The renovation of the Capitol building and other buildings around it cost about $300 million and began in 2014. The project included replacing outdated building systems, adding safety infrastructure and creating larger meeting rooms.
