Courthouse Complex Expansion Project
This construction is part of the Loudoun County Courthouse Complex expansion project that includes the design and construction of the new 92,000-square-foot Loudoun County District Courthouse and renovation of existing courts facilities, including new parking facilities. Work to install drywall, door frames and window glazing is complete on all levels. Permanent power for the new building has been established, and crews have installed the elevators and are painting interior walls.
On the outside of the building, Church Street NE remains closed between Market and Cornwall Streets, which restricts vehicular and pedestrian traffic while crews work to complete the installation of dry utilities. Construction of an underground tunnel that connects the new courthouse to the existing courthouse has been completed.
Planning is underway for the start of the existing courthouse renovation associated with the new tunnel.. The Loudoun County Courthouse Expansion project is expected to be complete and open to the public in 2023. Visitors to the Loudoun County Courthouse will continue to have access to free parking throughout the duration of the project at the Pennington Lot and Pennington Garage which are located approximately two blocks from the courthouse near the intersection of Church and North Streets, NE.
