JUNEAU- Up to $890,000 in work is expected to begin at the Governor's Mansion this summer, including replacement of a retaining wall and removal of soil contaminated by lead paint.
   
Tanci Mintz, the state leasing and facilities manager, says Gov. Sean Parnell and first lady Sandy Parnell will be able to live in the house while work is under way.
   
The project includes replacing a retaining wall that Mintz says is deteriorating and has been on a deferred maintenance list for four years. Plans also call for replacing the fence around the property and removing soil believed to have been contaminated by lead paint used on the house's exterior years ago. A pathway also is to be replaced.
   
Mintz says the project cost includes landscaping expected to begin next spring.
