CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia Veterans Memorial at the state Capitol Complex is going to get a makeover.
Members of the state Capitol Building Commission approved upgrades to the memorial Wednesday after reviewing architectural and engineering plans.
The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/HYGCy7) reports the project is estimated to cost $1.6 million and include a new lighting system, fountain drains, paving stones and handrails.
The commission also approved plans to replace the roof on the flat portion of the state Capitol building. The project also includes new outdoor walkways and steps connecting the second-floor East and West Wings.
The cost of that project won't be known until contractors submit bids.
