AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Officials say the grand open house for the Capital Judicial Center in Augusta has been pushed back four months.
The Morning Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1b5hrbQ ) the 120,000-square-foot, four-story building opened for business March 2. But its ceremonial opening has been postponed from May 1 to Sept. 18 to accommodate officials’ schedules.
The new courthouse holds the Unified Criminal Docket, Augusta District Court, Kennebec County Superior Court and family court. But parts of the $57 million project are still underway. Construction officials are still working on a 92-slot parking area adjacent to the building.
Maine Supreme Judicial Court Associate Justice Joseph Jabar says leftover construction issues haven’t interfered with the functioning of the courts.
Officials expect both projects to be completed by the end of the summer.
