Capitol Dome Restoration - May 2016
The Architect of the Capitol is in the final painting phase of the Dome Restoration Project. Other restoration work also continues.
Starting at the top, scaffolding will be removed gradually, with certain levels taken down over time, as work is completed. The entire project (exterior and interior) will be complete and all scaffolding will be removed prior to the Presidential Inauguration in January 2017.
