WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Rain and cold weather delayed a project around the White County Courthouse.

Crews are fixing sidewalks, building a new wall around the courthouse, and installing bricks on the east side of the building. The project has an estimated cost of around $250,000.

Project manager Rod Pool said the plan was to have it finished by the first festival in June, but weather has caused some problems.

“There’s people working today around the mud puddles and stuff,” Pool said. “As soon as they can work, we’re going to do it. And I still think there is a good possibility that we’ll have it 90 percent complete and ready to go by the festival.”

Pool said this is the first update to the plaza in nearly 40 years. He added there will be a dedication ceremony held once the project is complete.
