City to redo courthouse doors, could cost up to $600K | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The City of Jacksonville will have to replace up to 200 doors on the downtown courthouse in order to comply with ADA standards.
The doors in question may not be handicap accessible.
Councilman John Cresimbeni said Mayor Alvin Brown approved the project Thursday. Between 100 to 200 courthouse doors will have to be redone.
Each new door will cost $3,000. If all 200 doors are replaced, the City will pay $600,000 from the Courthouse Contingency Fund, according to Cresimbeni.
The Councilman said Public Works is going to handle the cost at the City's expense.
Cresimbeni said they will attempt to recover the money spent on the doors from Turner Construction, the contractor on the new courthouse.
