Rehabbing Justice

Yesterday, the Los Angeles County Annual Report uploaded a video report detailing progress on the renovations and repairs being made to the Los Angeles County Hall of Justice.  Built in 1925, the Hall of Justice initially housed the courts, district attorney's offices, sheriff's offices, and a jail.  However, extreme damage caused by the Northridge Earthquake in 1994 made occupation of the building unsafe, and, for almost two decades, it has sat empty and abandoned.  Finally, in the spring of last year, Clark Construction began the restoration process.  The renovations will include removal of the jail cells, enlarged office space, a new cafeteria, and a desperately needed parking garage.
