Gov. Phil Murphy led a dedication ceremony to officially reopen the State House to the public.
The six-year, $283 million renovation project began during the Christie administration. The project revamped everything from a foundation dug by hand to sprinklers in the floor to LED lighting.
“It is a safer building, it is a healthier building, it is a more energy efficient building,” says Murphy. “It is a building in which the business of government can be more effectively practiced. It is a building that is once again befitting a proud state.”
Officials honored the late Ray Arcario, who headed the state Building Authority and spearheaded the renovation project. He died last year. His family was in attendance at Monday’s ceremony.
