New Jersey Secures $38 Million in Contracts for Statehouse RenovationLast Edited:
New Jersey has secured roughly $38 million in contracts — thus far — for the $300 million debt-financed renovation of the Statehouse which began last year.
The State Treasury confirmed the figure on Thursday, May 24th, adding that $11.7 million has been paid out so far.
Former Governor Chris Christie called for the renovation project last year saying it was needed because the building was hazardous.
Officials say the extensive four-year project is about 15- to 20-percent complete, and expect to have it entirely completed by 2022.
Governor Phil Murphy's administration says the renovation is on budget, but they are trying to bring it in under budget.
