The Texas state capitol in Austin is facing a major renovation this summer.
While the city has received hundreds of millions of dollars in federal aid, the Capitol is in dire need of a major upgrade.
The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors.
The capital building is currently undergoing major upgrades to accommodate the expected growth in the area, which is currently home to nearly 1 million people.
The building has been renovated in the past, but this is the first time that the building will be completely overhauled.
This project, which will also include the construction of new facilities, will bring new services, offices and retail space, among other amenities.
Construction of the new buildings began earlier this year, but construction was put on hold in early August due to the heat wave that hit Texas, according to a news release from the city.
The city has been working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Texas Department of Transportation to get the project underway.
The capital will be complete by September 2018, according the release.
While the project is expected to bring more than $1 billion in additional spending for the state, the capital is expected be more than fully funded by the federal government, according a statement from the governor’s office.
The construction of the capital will also provide new revenue for the Texas government and other important government programs, according Texas Gov.
The Capital has been a major focus for the governor, as the state continues to grapple with a major flood crisis and the nation’s worst drought in decades.
Abbott said in January that the state needed to invest more in infrastructure, and he also announced a $3 billion flood relief package to assist Texas.
The state will be able to provide more than 2 million homes and businesses with relief grants for storm damage.
