PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - Cracks have appeared outside the entrance to the city of Portsmouth’s $78 million courthouse that opened just three years ago.

The Virginian-Pilot (https://bit.ly/1WydTTn) reports city officials have cordoned off sections outside the courthouse’s main entrance with caution tape to keep people from tripping.

The courthouse opened in September 2012, combining the city’s various courts under one roof. It also houses the prosecutor’s and much of the sheriff’s office.

Portsmouth acting property management manager Cheryl Hawkins says she has hired a company to pull up granite stones where the cracks have appeared and start fixing the problem.
