A cap-strapped Texas team is set to get its most out from the state’s largest state park in the next several months, thanks to the $100 million renovation.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is set for a $2.6 million capital improvement project on the Capitol building that will be completed in 2019.
The Capitol’s exterior is already getting some love, and a new addition that will add a grand view of the Capitol and the surrounding area will also be completed during the project.
In total, the $10.6 billion project will include a new $10 million roof, exterior walls and lighting.
The $7.8 million addition to the Capitol itself will include exterior walls, ceiling, glass and electrical work.
The project also includes a new security entrance, a new walkway that will run through the capacious structure, and an expansion to the plaza.
The State Capitol was built by the Texas Legislature in the early 19th century, and is the second largest in the U.S. The state also has the highest population of any state, with more than 3.8 billion people, which is a nearly 2.5-percentage point increase from 2015.
The Capitol is currently home to a U.N. mission and other federal agencies.
