JUNEAU, Alaska — The final phase of renovation work on the governor's mansion is scheduled to begin soon.
The scope of work, according to the state Department of Administration, will include proper abatement of any remaining lead paint. The total cost of the final phase is estimated at about $366,000.
The department, in a release, said a sole-source contract was awarded and deemed to be essential to complete the work before any additional issues with exposure arose. It says the short construction season for exterior work and need for specialized equipment also were factors.
Other work to the mansion in recent years has included replacement of the roof and gutters and the removal and replacement of paint and stucco.
