Lafayette Courthouse Renovations


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A collection of major renovation projects at the Lafayette Parish Courthouse will refurbish 2 of the decades-old elevators and gut the former parish jail on the seventh floor.

The Advocate reports  more than $2 million worth of work is planned during the next two years.

Kay Richard, with the city-parish Department of Public Works, says the elevators, which are original to the 1960s-era building, will be fully refurbished with new parts.

The seventh floor served as the parish jail from when the courthouse was built in 1965 until the completion of new parish jail next door in 1984.

Clerk of Court Louis Perret says the space has occasionally been used for storage but is not fit for office space because it lacks climate control.
