Portions of the Fayette County Circuit Courthouse building will reopen this morning. The four story structure has been shut down since Monday, October 21 following a water line break. The break caused extensive damage to sections of the first through the fourth floors. Most of the first and fourth floors plus courtrooms on the second and third floor will open up today.
The Fayette County Office of Circuit Court will continue to operate out of the adjacent District Court Building until this Wednesday. Then, the plan calls for the office to move back to its original site. The remaining sections of the Circuit Courthouse are expected to open in four to six weeks.
