The $50 million renovation of the Illinois Statehouse is winding down. One question not answered, though, was the cost of the new wood clad doors with a copper exterior. State Journal-Register columnist Dave Bakke looked into the cost of the doors, which he heard were $240,000 per door. After running in circles looking for the answer, he found out the total cost of the exterior doors was $669,608 for the three doorways, which included $78,000 for installation.
