Courthouse Construction Project

Re-defining downtown 

Physical construction on the 250,000-square-foot Cabarrus Courthouse expansion/renovation begins in 2020, and officials expect the entire project to last about five years. 

Plans include the relocation of the courthouse entrance to a pedestrian plaza built on the former Means Avenue. This will allow for better access from Church and Union streets. The project will update the nearly 50-year-old building and help with a continued increase in court traffic.
