CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Hundreds of employees are moving to temporary offices before renovations begin on the Wyoming Capitol and an adjacent state office building.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1L89Xmd ) more than 620 state workers have already moved or will move before construction on the $300 million project begins early next year.

The Capitol will be completely emptied and many state agencies will be forced out of the Herschler Building.

The renovations are expected to last until late 2018.

Suzanne Norton of the state’s Construction Management Division says it’s been a “monumental task” to find temporary space across Cheyenne.

The relocations include the Legislature and staff moving to the Jonah Financial Center.

The relocation costs are expected to be $1.6 million, plus $11.7 million in leases and upgrades for the temporary offices.
