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.
