RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Gov. Terry McAuliffe has approved the design phase of a planned $300 million renovation at the state Capitol.

McAuliffe had suspended work on the project in June 2014, citing other budget needs.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the Democratic governor allowed the state to issue bid requests earlier this month for architectural and engineering designs.

Plans call for a new office building and parking deck for state lawmakers and the renovation of Richmond’s Old City Hall.

McAuliffe spokesman Brian Coy says construction work hasn’t yet been authorized.
