Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) issued a statement today about repairs to the Lafayette Parish Courthouse which will impact the public. The public is asked to note these changes and plan accordingly.
The District Attorney’s Office, currently housed at the Parish Courthouse, is moving the weekend of September 6-8 to the 5th Floor of the Whitney Bank Building at 911 Lee Avenue.
On September 9, the District Attorney’s office will open at the new location in the Whitney Bank building.
This temporary move is expected to last up to two years, and it will allow contractors to complete the renovations and repairs on the 6th and 7th floors of the courthouse. The 7th floor has been vacant since 1985, when the current jail was completed.
The Courthouse elevator project, which began earlier this summer, remains on schedule for September completion, but the public is asked to continue to expect delays and plan ahead for trips to conduct business at the Parish Courthouse. The public is also advised that the jury pool has been moved to the third floor.
Lafayette Consolidated Government has completed several renovations to the nearly 50-year-old building over the last several years, including replacement of the air conditioners and chillers, fire alarm replacement, and roof replacement.
