Southern Oregon courthouse gets $2.4 millon safety upgrade

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) – The Josephine County Courthouse in Grants Pass is getting a $2.4 million safety upgrade.

The multimillion-dollar renovation won’t change its appearance, but will make the 95-year-old courthouse safer and more efficient.

Work started last week on the basement level of the building, where the treasurer’s, assessor’s and surveyor’s offices are located.

The project is part of a statewide effort to renovate courthouses and government buildings after the Oregon Legislature found that 48 courthouses and buildings needed repairs and
additions to meet seismic and safety regulations.

Ausland Group is in charge of the Josephine County project, which is expected to be finished in June.
