    Although the south entry to the Historic Courthouse will be closed for several months, the public will still be able to access the courts and offices in the building through doors on the east side of the building.


    The closure is necessary to replace tiles and bricks around the steps of the courthouse that face down Main Street, said Facilities Director David Phillips.  Work on the south side of the Historic Courthouse will be concurrent with the restoration of the portico on the west side of the building.


    During the renovation period, which is expected to be finished by early 2015, the entrance that provides compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) will be moved to the east side, too, he said.


    When the renovation is complete, the ADA entrance will be moved permanently to the west side, Phillips noted, and new ADA parking spaces will be provided along Houston Street.
