Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project
As of June 30, 2015
ATTENTION! IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT THE MAIN ENTRANCE MOVING.
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE:
Mechanical (HVAC), electrical, and plumbing work continues inside the new building. Walls are being framed and covered with drywall. At the main entrance exterior they are installing the decorative metal paneling along the roof and pouring a temporary walkway. In the garage, workers are removing the shoring posts that supported the beam repairs that have been completed on the street level. To the north of the building, foundations are being built for the new north additions.
If you are curious about something that you see and want to ask questions just call Justin Ryder (contact info below) and the Courts Project Team will do their best to answer!
Fun Fact: The Courts Garage extends 60 feet to the north of the Courts Building, underground! So the new north additions won’t be built on soil, they will be built on top of the underground garage!
MAIN ENTRANCE RELOCATED:
All employees and visitors entering the County Courts Building from the street must enter through the new lobby located on South Central Avenue. Access to the new lobby is now from the corner of South Central Avenue and Bonhomme Avenue. The old entrance is closed.
CONCOURSE WORK / DELI BOOTHS:
Starting the week of June 29th, the contractor will begin constructing a new room in the Concourse at the Substreet Deli dining area. The concourse and deli will remain open and accessible throughout construction. A few of the booths will be removed, but the rest of the dining area will remain open.
METROBUS FREE RIDE ZONE:
We have updated our timetables to match Metro’s (current as of 4/2/2015). Please contact Justin (contact info below) if you need an updated timetable.
NOISE INSIDE COURTHOUSE:
The contractor is making structural repairs on the Street Level of the Courthouse. This requires some jackhammering that can be heard inside the building, especially in the lower levels of the building. Noisy work has been confined to the hours of 7am-9am, with a break between 9am and Noon, then starts up again at noon and continues the rest of the day.
