After years of construction at the state Capitol dome, the renovations are complete and the dome is once again open to the public.
State officials will be holding a dedication ceremony Thursday to mark the reopening of the newly restored Colorado Capitol dome.
Workers are putting the finishing touches on the new gold leaf covering the state Capitol’s dome.
The gold that will be used to replace the gilding on the state Capitol dome is back in Colorado after being transformed into gold leaf in Italy.
Gold mined in Colorado’s Cripple Creek and Victor areas is now on its way to Italy where it will be turned into gold leaf and then returned to the state.
