California company helps restore U.S. Capitol Dome in Washington

High above the halls of Congress sits a dome awaiting repair with help from a Turlock company. Lock-N-Stitch Inc. is making metal “stitches” to be used on about 1,000 cracks in the cast iron that makes up most of the U.S. Capitol dome. It is part of the $59.55 million restoration of the dome, which is 147 years old and showing wear from the elements in Washington, D.C.
