A $60 million, two-year project to repair the dome of the US Capitol was given the green light by Congress on October 22. Weather and age have taken their toll since the cast-iron dome was last restored in 1960, leaving over 1,000 cracks and other deficiencies. A scaffold will surround the dome for the two years of the restoration works, said the architects. Credit: US Capitol. less
