A giant construction crane towering beside the Statehouse is coming down next month as the massive renovation of the building nears its end.

Statehouse architect Barry Greis says the cost of the 13-year project will fall a little short of the $332 million projected by state officials last year.

Greis said that beams that supported the scaffolding will start coming down this week while work continues on the visitors' center in the basement.

The floor will contain a map of Kansas set in stone, which each of the 105 counties identified.

Greis said some landscaping will wait until early spring.
