After years of talking about the need to repair the Oklahoma Capitol, the process is finally nearing a point of action — actual repair. This is good, although long overdue, news.
Kansas City-based JE Dunn Construction has been selected to perform up to $25 million in repairs to the Capitol’s exterior. The contract won’t be officially awarded until early next year, after the state receives proceeds from a $120 million bond sale. That delay is just one of many encountered as officials have sought to advance repair efforts in recent years.
