CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Work on a security project at the Capitol Complex is on hold while a judge considers a contractor’s lawsuit.

McClanahan Construction of Poca is challenging the state’s decision to award the contract for the $3.4 million project to Wiseman Construction of Charleston.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1NCt3Ru ) reports that Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Joanna Tabit on Monday granted McClanahan’s request to temporarily stop work on the project.

McClanahan was the low bidder for the contract but was disqualified for submitting a nonconforming bid. Wiseman submitted the second lowest bid.

The state plans to install a fence surrounding the Governor’s Mansion and convert two parking lots adjacent to the Culture Center into a bus turnaround.



A hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
