Final stage of painting at Capitol Dome underway

The Architect of the Capitol has started the final phase of the Capitol Dome restoration, with workers painting the base of the Statue of Freedom.

The renovation of the U.S. Capitol Dome is drawing to a close, as Architect of the Capitol workers have started the final phase of painting.

Starting at the top, workers are currently painting the base of tee Statue of Freedom and then the small enclosures around the dome. They’ve installed small enclosures on the scaffolding to prevent overspray to drift beyond the project area.

Workers typically enclose two sections at a time during the painting process.
