HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WFFT)- Huntington County Courthouse is undergoing a $6 million renovation to preserve the life of the building built in 1904.

The project also includes fixing the brick, adding a new heating and cooling system that will be brought up to today's standards, new LED lighting inside the courthouse and new electrical ADA compliant bathrooms on the second floor.

A new exterior roof will also be installed on the courthouse.

Right now the public is encouraged to use the ramp entrance to enter and exit the building.

"We're trying to keep the public safe. We're trying to keep the front opening on Jefferson Street open full time because that's where our security is," Greg Ricker said.

Ricker is the facility manager for Huntington County Courthouse.

New heating systems were installed on the east side of the courthouse.

They are already up and running.

Ricker said he appreciates the public's patience during this time.
