CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Renovation work of the Cacapon Resort State Park lodge will begin soon, Gov. Jim Justice said Wednesday.
The governor announced bids for the multi-million dollar project came in on budget. Paramount Builders, of St. Albans, submitted a low bid of $25.38 million to complete work, which will include adding 78 guestrooms, a dining room, lounge, spa and indoor pool.
“Our parks are some of the most beautiful places you’ll ever see, but they need a lot of work,” Justice said in a press release. “Moving forward with this project is just another way I’ve kept my promise to improve our state and it will make Cacapon a more attractive vacation destination in the Eastern Panhandle.”
The project will be funded by bonds backed by excess lottery revenue. Other upgrades to the park will use money from the park improvement bonds approved earlier this year.
Construction work includes remodeling existing guest rooms, creating a new conference center, renovating the lobby and upgrading utility and electrical equipment. The related work is scheduled to be completed by 2020.
